Our Expertise

Topics for Individual coaching and advocacy, School and Business consultation & Autism Acceptance presentations

Communication

We provide direct instruction to understand the nonverbal components of conversation, such as body language, facial expressions, and the sound of speech. We also help with the verbal components, how to follow the flow of conversation, the nuances of conversation, understanding idioms and local expressions, since these are also difficult.

Sensory Differences

We understand sensory sensitivities and work to create healthy living strategies. Healthy strategies can positively affect many aspects of life, easing challenges both mental and physical.  We teach individuals with autism, with or without diagnoses, techniques for better health and hygiene, mindful of your sensory concerns.

Parent/Guardian Support

Would you like support as you navigate the challenges and celebrate the gifts your child brings? Do you want to know how to participate in creating an IEP or 504 plan ?  We listen to you and provide guidance to work through your concerns and challenges.  We are happy to listen and collaborate with you to address them.

Relationships

We teach the understanding of expressions of empathy, the differences between interactions with acquaintances and friends, how to maintain friendships, and awareness of sexual behaviors. We are happy to work with individuals with autism, with or without diagnoses, understand the who, what, where, when, why, and how of relating to others. 

Executive Function

Good executive functioning skills lead to success in school, relationships, and employment.  We have many options for making organizing, time management, and setting goals easier.  We are happy to share knowledge and techniques for assisting with executive function for kids, teens, and adults, through consult and presentations.

Embracing Autism in the Workplace

Do you have concerns about working with individuals with autism?  People with autism provide many benefits to their employers and coworkers but initial adoption and acceptance can be tricky.  We will share knowledge on the benefits of employees with ASD and workshops for integrating them into the workforce.

Expected & Confusing Behaviors

Do you feel like your interactions are off? Are you/ or your child committing social blunders?We facilitate understanding the everchanging unwritten rules for interacting in various places and times. Learning to read the environment for clues is a critical skill for determining how to interact.

Employment Obtaining & Maintaining

Successful employment requires many things that individuals with Autism often find challenging: interviewing skills, good communication, “reading the room”, dress, and hygiene are some common concerns.  We work with you to discover how to overcome your specific challenges so you can achieve true independence.

Emotional Regulation and Mindfulness

Are you unsure of the reason you react to different experiences? We provide strategies to become aware of emotions and balance their expression. Sensory differences result in differences in the perception of emotions, and their expression. Emotional regulation is an important part of creating and maintaining relationships, and employment.
