I have been involved in the area of autism for 30 years; developing programs for children on the autism spectrum and other challenges, training parents and professionals in the art and skills necessary to affect desired changes or progress, guiding the development of children with ASD to encourage strengths, celebrate quirks, and improve weaknesses. I understand the array of feelings and challenges confronting parents of children with special needs: the highs and the lows, the fears and frustrations, the helplessness and empowerment. 

Oftentimes, the impact that a diagnosis of ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) can have on the sibling, marital, and extended family relationships is overlooked. My training and experience prepare me to work with the entire family system.  There are few situations which I haven't encountered over the years, each distinct in some aspect and demanding a caring, compassionate and individualized approach for maximum benefit.

The dilemma of how to help your child with autism is a parent's challenge.  
Let's identify goals based on your child's abilities and achieve them.
