What is ASD Coaching for Students?

ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) Coaching for Students is a specialized support service designed to address unique learning and social needs. Students on the autism spectrum often face challenges with social communication, organization, social cues, problem-solving, learning through traditional means, and understanding different perspectives. This coaching service provides explicit 1:1 instruction and cognitive modeling to help students identify and overcome specific challenges while developing skills such as self-advocacy, organization, and interpersonal relationships.

Instead of following a rigid curriculum, ASD Coaching for Students uses personalized strategies tailored to each student’s unique experiences and strengths, ensuring that every coaching plan aligns with their specific needs.
