Assistive Technology iPads

Assistive Technology Program: iPad Basics


Tuesday April 9, 2019

A six week class for patrons 55 and older with a vision change. Have you heard about the iPad but are not sure what it is? Do you have an iPad but are not sure how to use it? In this beginner class you will receive an introduction to the iPad. In addition, you will be introduced to accessibility features on the iPad, such as Zoom and Voice Over (Apple’s built-in screen reader), to access the iPad. (Each class is 1.5 hours.)

This program is provided by The New Jersey Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired (CBVI) as part of the Library Equal Access Program (LEAP) for New Jersey residents 55 and older who have experienced a change in vision. The Commission supports FREE iPad and computer training classes through Advancing Opportunities. 

To register & for more information, please call Advancing Opportunities, Assistive Technology Services, 888-322-1918, extension 501 or send an email to jnigl@advopps.org.  At the phone number, you will receive voicemail. In your phone message or email, please leave your name, phone number and the best time to reach you. If you have a cellphone, leave that number as well. Please be aware that there is much interest in these classes, so the volume of calls and emails will be high. It may take several days for your message to be returned.  Due to limited seating for these classes, only registered participants will be able to attend.

The LEAP program is sponsored by the NJ Commission for the Blind and Visually Impaired in partnership with Advancing Opportunities and the New Jersey State Library Talking Book and Braille Center.

Springtime Qigong Classes


Tuesday April 9, 2019
7:00 PM
Pronounced “che-gong”, Qigong is a traditional Chinese mindful exercise system for cultivating and strengthening the body’s vital energy. Also known as “Chinese Yoga,” Qigong consists of a series of slow-flowing movements, which gently stretch muscles, tendons and ligaments. Similar to Tai Chi, these low-impact exercises heighten awareness of the mind-body-breath connection. Meditation and visualization are also a part of Qigong practice. Using the mind, the practitioner gathers, guides and circulates internal energy with graceful and precise movements. Qigong can be practiced by all age groups and can easily be adapted for the physically challenged. Everyone is welcome to join us for weekly classes by local resident Bianca Godoy. No previous experience or registration required.

Our instructor Bianca Godoy holds certifications to teach Qigong from the Supreme Science Qigong Center, the Chinese Health Qigong Association, and the Institute of Integral Qigong and Tai Chi. A Morristown resident, Godoy has been practicing Qigong, Yoga and Tai Chi for over 20 years.
