PARENT COACHING AND CONSULTATION

I help parents and caregivers understand and address challenges that their children are experiencing and develop a plan of action. The format can be brief (6-10 sessions) or it can span a longer term. Issues can include:

  • Behavior and Communication Challenges

  • Emotion and Mood Dysregulation

  • Developmental Delays

  • Special Education and Support Teams

EVALUATION

Some adults have spent their lives feeling different, or have received a diagnosis that does not feel like it fully captures their strengths and differences. For these adults who suspect they have autism, I provide targeted evaluations. Attuned to the more subtle characteristics of autism, I place value on individual differences and affirm neurodiversity. Testing includes the strengths-based MIGDAS-2, the ADOS-2 and other tools, a structured interview, and a developmental history. Evaluations explore:

  • Social Relationships

  • Emotional Responses

  • Sensory Use and Interests

  • Language and Communication

  • Learning Differences 

  • Neurodiversity Across the Lifespan

  • Universal Design for Learning
