Here's HOW...

Employment Advocacy


Are you or a loved one an individual with autism seeking employment?

Are you an employer looking to hire well-qualified and dependable individuals?


One of the hallmarks of ASD is a difficulty with social communication, this can have devastating outcomes when it comes to interviewing for a position. Let me help close the gap between potential employees and potential employers by supporting this and other crucial and specifically social aspects of employment. Through tailored training and/or on-going consultation on-site or virtually, Autism Outfitters can help make gainful employment a reality!

Individual Intervention and Coaching


Want more out of life?

Want to more independent?

Want to build a career and family of your own?


Traditional educational programs have historically focused on academic training but did little to prepare students to be independent contributing members of society. Autism Outfitters can change that and fill in the missing gaps to help you learn the soft skills and self-regulation strategies necessary to live a healthy, happy, and productive life. Through tailored training and/or on-going consultation on-site or virtually, Autism Outfitters can help make independence a reality!

Training Packages for family and friends


Are you seeking answers about autism?

Are you unsure of how to be supportive?

Do you want more information on evidence-based strategies and solutions at home?


While there are many services out there to support individuals with autism, very few focus on training the family. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but what if the village needs specialized training to support their loved one? Through tailored training and/or on-going consultation on-site or virtually, Autism Outfitters can help make effective family support a reality!
