EMPOWERING PARENTS & IMPROVING OUTCOMES

As parents and caregivers of children with special needs,

we know the obstacles of getting care from medical, educational and community resources.  The bottom line is these "outside" services cannot support your child and all their needs.  

You must have an organized home base.  It is essential.    

Besides the ABC Letter Book, we offer effective and simple home solutions to improve your child's outcomes while making autism easier.  We improve current supports, find new resources, and start (or step up) home intervention so you're organized. 

 

Imagine at the end of the day you can sleep, not only because your child is sleeping, but because you know you're doing your best.  All our practices are research-based and proven techniques designed by education professionals, BCBAs, and Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs).

Noah's Mom

Deirdre helped me sort through a very confusing time when my son was first diagnosed.  She asked questions to understand what I thought was best for my child and family then gave me a simple plan of best next steps.  She has a way of reminding you to stay present and not get too far ahead which helped me a lot.

"Deirdre wrote a gap plan for my daughter to promote her successful transition to kindergarten and a new school.  She introduced me to new resources, provided materials for organization, and shared ideas.  Deirdre has a rare combination of professional and personal experience.  I am grateful for her help and support."

Daniel's Mom

 

Deirdre helped our family apply for LISS funding, answered our questions and gave us referrals to use for services after we received an award.  It is simple now, but going through it wasn't and it was great to have someone to call for guidance.
