What I Do

After learning of an autism diagnosis or moving to a new area, it can take months to learn about available resources. With Next Steps, you will have a partner to help you find the autism resources you need for yourself or family member.

Parent Consulting

The best referrals are made through relationships.

​To help parents navigate through this time I will:

  • Meet with parents and learn about their child and family's unique strengths and challenges.

  • Guide parents in determining and prioritizing the next steps they should take to help their child thrive.

  • Provide parents with a personalized list of autism-informed professionals, activities, camps, and other supports that will help them take the next step with their child.

Adult Consulting

 

Finding the right resources can make all the difference.​

​To help adults navigate through this time I will:

  • Consult with adults who suspect they are on the autism spectrum and are seeking resources for a diagnosis. It can be challenging to find a professional who will evaluate an adult for autism.

  • Refer adults to resources for employment support or support groups for themselves or their partners.
