Autism Spectrum Disorder Training provides our clients with personalized comprehensive professional development sessions in which learning objectives are set. We then utilize multifaceted materials and interactive methods to engage the participants while improving and broadening their ASD knowledge and skills on a range of topics related to ASD.
As an Autism Spectrum Disorder Consultant, we work to establish an environment that fosters open communication to determine the needs of the client and then provides them with the appropriate ASD information, resources and support. Problem solving and collaborative discussion make the consultation process successful. We pride ourselves on starting where the client is and moving at a pace that is suitable for them.
As an Autism Spectrum Disorder Coach, we work with our clients through hands on experience; providing them the opportunity to apply newly acquired ASD knowledge and skills in a safe environment with professional support and guidance. This process builds on our clients' individual strengths while increasing their working knowledge of evidence based ASD strategies.
