It's about training the village.
We've gotten to the point of autism awareness in our society, but everyone is still afraid.
We often don't understand.
...don't know what to do.
...don't know how to interact.

All training opportunities are personalized to best meet your needs and are packed full of evidence-based and up-to-date information.
I offer small or large group training lectures, including brief one-hour sessions to full multi-day events and everything in between. Seminars are appropriate for professionals, parents, employees, and individuals with autism.
These events engage the audience with hands-on and interactive learning opportunities. Workshops are well-suited for groups of 10 or more and require a little more space to move.
Training for your staff or organization provided on-site and specific to your needs. These events are well-suited for a lunch-n-learn type event as well as lengthier or multi-day sessions to allow your staff the opportunity to apply what they've learned and return to the table for follow-up and feedback.
All of these training formats can be prepared and delivered in real-time online with interactive discussions or recorded to be viewed at your convenience.
