Having a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be overwhelming for families and caregivers. Not only do families need to adjust to this life changing diagnosis but now they have to become knowledgeable about the myriad of services and resources available to them.
ASD is a life long disability that requires constant attention and diligence on the part of parents and caregivers. Since ASD has received so much attention over the last 15 years, there is a vast amount of information available to parents. How do you sort through all of this stuff and figure out what you need to do right now?
At Autism Lifespan Coach (ALC) we will help you do just that. Rather than you spending countless hours and long nights on the internet trying to piece it all together, ALC will consult with you to provide information, referrals, support and resources that you need for your child, whether you have a young child or adult child. Many agencies operate in silos, only understanding their service role for a person with Autism. They are not able to articulate what other agencies offer. ALC utilizes an integrated coaching process which gives you the big picture. ALC will also focus on what you need today and not inundate you with what is needed in 10 years. Master the information, services and resources for the lifespan your child is on now.
So let Autism Lifespan Coach help you help your child by getting you organized, knowledgeable and networked. Knowledge is power and empowering you will ultimately lead to your child being a better self advocate.
