Coaching for Adults & Older Teens – LifeMAP
LifeMAP is a highly individualized life coaching program for Autistic adults and older teens. Coaches use their expertise in Autism to help clients identify their strengths and work toward goals of their choosing such as finding employment, building relationships, or attending college.
Coaching for Parents
Parents and other adult family members should consider parent coaching when they have a complex set of questions or difficult issues to address. Parent coaching is a one-to-one intensive problem solving and skills-building session or series of sessions designed to help parents of Autistic children, teens, or adults identify practical strategies they can use to address their child’s and their family’s unique needs.
Coaching for Neurodiverse Partners
Professionals specifically trained to work with neurodiverse couples offer coaching with individual partners separately or with both partners together, whatever works best. The focus is on problem-solving in the relationship through a neurological lens providing coping strategies for one or both partners and relationship and communication skill-building.
- MA Housing
Often, parents and guardians find themselves stressed by the confusing language and the volume of paperwork involved in an IEP. We have the personal and professional expertise to guide you through the process, reduce your stress and concern, and help you feel confident about your child’s IEP.
There’s no one right way to do life after high school. Autistic teens have variable degrees of readiness for post-secondary education. Luckily there are a great variety of post-secondary programs to choose from. We can help you determine your teen’s strengths and needs and make decisions as a family.
