EFToolkit - Resources for Executive Functions A resource developed by Karen Janowski, Assistive Technology Consultant, EdTech Solutions MoocNote - Add Quizzes to Existing Videos MoocNote is a free service that I've written about a few times in the past as a tool for collaborative note-taking while watching a video. It is a good service for doing that. Recently, MoocNote expanded to offer tools for adding quiz questions to videos. Assistive Technology Tools for Learning Differences, ADHD, and Executive Function Challenges My Assistive Technology Toolbox (Last updated 10/04/20) I use a wide variety of technologies in my practice, both high-tech and low-tech – too numerous to mention here – but I'd like to list the most significant ones that I rely on and include in my trainings. These are tools that I currently use or have used with clients, and tools that I know are effective based on inputs from colleagues who also employ and teach assistive technology. Because many technology products and utilities perform multiple functions, it's difficult to list them by categories such as "Technologies for Reading" and "Technologies for Writing" – certain tools would show up in several places – so I've chosen to list them in a more eclectic manner that's still somewhat logical. Use this information to guide your exploration of potentially helpful technology, and please keep in mind that there are far, far more tools out there than are listed below – this is merely the tip of the tip of the assistive technology iceberg.

Self-employment Self-employment is the state of working for oneself rather than an employer. Generally, tax authorities will view a person as self-employed if the person chooses to be recognised as such, or is generating income such that the person is required to file a tax return under legislation in the relevant jurisdiction. In the real world, the critical issue for the taxing authorities is not that the person is trading but is whether the person is profitable and hence potentially taxable. In other words, the activity of trading is likely to be ignored if no profit is present, so occasional and hobby- or enthusiast-based economic activity is generally ignored by authorities. Self-employed people generally find their own work rather than being provided with work by an employer, earning income from a profession, a trade or a business that they operate.
