Let Me Help You…
I provide social skills coaching to teens and adults with developmental, social, and intellectual disabilities, such as autism, Asperger Syndrome, nonverbal learning disability, ADHD, social anxiety, and brain injury.
Adults with special needs are currently an underserved population. As part of an IEP, children from birth to age 21 are eligible for services relating to social skills training. Past the age of 21, however, adults with social difficulties find their services dramatically reduced. These adults with special needs are left out in the cold.
For some teenagers and adults, the social skills training they received as children was sufficient for them to interact successfully with other people. Many other people either received no social skills training as children, or find that the training they did receive was not adequate, often because they were not able to transfer it to real life. I provide the social skills coaching that these individuals need to succeed in life.
There are many teens and adults who want to understand social interaction. They want to have somebody explain the unwritten rules of social behavior, and I love being able to demystify these social rules for them. I am passionate about my work, and I love seeing people grow from my coaching.
