Rehab Resources Discussed in May's Google Meet


Recommended Posts

  • Members

The May 2023 Google Meet that Mary Beth hosted was great.  One of the discussion topics was people's favorite rehab resources. 

I collected the list of rehab resources and then added a little more information.  Here are the resources that people mentioned  that I was able to get listed (sorry if I missed anything.)  Most of these items are discussed in separate threads and warrant their own discussions but I thought it might be nice to see them listed alongside each other.

on my iPhone for some reason your document has the comments column cut off- even if I switch to landscape mode.  Maybe also post it as a pic or a downloadable pdf so everyone sees all your info?

@Mary Beth

Happy to oblige!  Here is the table as a screen capture in case that works better for people.

I should have added Podcasts, Ted talks, and YouTube too. Could have also provided links to worksheets or exercises but that just didn't seem to fit.

Feel free to respond with things that I missed, comments that you disagree with, or anything else. 

In any case, I hope people find it helpful.

Wow, thanks ... in anticipation that I'll need these in the not too distant future!
