Are you an educator looking to make your classroom environment and lesson plans more accessible for your autistic students? Are you a direct support professional wanting to help a client thrive in their home and daily routines? Are you a service provider looking for some additional consultation on how to help a child with a particularly challenging behavior or learning a new skill?
I can offer the help and guidance you need in all these areas through Spectrumize professional accessibility consulting services.
My focus and area of expertise is in antecedent interventions and environmental modification built on a thorough understanding of current research in the neuroscience of autism.
If an individual is exhibiting a particular challenging behavior or lagging skill, I help professionals dig deeper to understand what underlying neurological processes might be contributing to the problem. I collaborate with you, as the professional who works with the child or individual everyday, to complete observational assessments and build detailed profiles of sensory processing needs, executive functioning skills, cognitive styles, and communication modes.
Then we begin the exploratory process of identifying elements in the environment that are out-of-sync with the autistic person’s unique processing abilities and challenges. I help you to be a proactive problem-solver who sees and addresses potential issues before they can arise.
Lastly, after helping you identify these areas of mismatch with the environment, I consult on a range of possible solutions through environmental modifications, assistive technology, educational tools, and community resources. All of this is done while coaching you through the process so you can develop the necessary skills to implement such assessments and strategies with future clients.
