Here's how simple it will be to access Expert support
Once you receive access to the Gabadoo Platform, start by simply creating your Gabadoo account.
Provide details about your child and then choose the area you would like to focus on for the Gabadoo Review. Use videos, images & notes to highlight any concerns or questions you may have.
The information you provide is used to match you with a Gabadoo Expert in your country/state who will review your uploaded information within 5 days. When creating your Gabadoo Review, you can choose one 'Area of Focus' for that review (e.g Handwriting). Focusing on one area per review improves outcomes and prevents information overload.
You'll receive Strategies, Resources, Product Recommendations and Next Steps that are specific to you, your child and your home environment.
