My Philosophy

It's all about people and relationships...

In order to be effective with any person, on the spectrum or not, you must first treat them with respect.  Show them you are there to help, not to change who they are.  Let them see and understand their strengths while shaping their challenges, which may be holding them back from being successful.

No matter whom it is I am working with, a person with autism, a family, an administrator, or a staff person, the bottom line is: It's all about team work, and getting everyone on the same page.  Making sure every one is headed in the right direction on the same track.

...and, follow up is always the KEY.
