I provide career development coaching for individuals with Asperger's Syndrome (and similar autism spectrum profiles) and Nonverbal Learning Disorder. Services include career exploration, interview readiness, resume development, job search plans, performance improvement, executive function and communication skills coaching, disclosure strategy and accommodations. In-person coaching is available in greater Boston, MA and telephone and Skype is available nationwide.

Consultations for parents offer a review of your son or daughter's situation, and suggestions for determing the right type of job or career, and for finding employment.

Training and consultations are also available to organizations. Finding Employment That Works for Individuals with Asperger's Syndrome is a seminar for career counselors, disability services proviers, vocational rehabilitation specialists and job developers. Managing Employees with Asperger's Syndrome is for human resources and managers at businesses.
