A Letter From Our Co-Founders

To Our Future Clients,

 

Thank you so much for considering meeting us! We started this company with a singular goal in mind; to provide consistent and customized support to our families. After many years of working with the autism population, we have seen a huge need in the community for a support team that is not confined to a specific area of practice. A support team that can move through new chapters of life along with you. We have also seen what a profound impact insurance companies can have on a child’s progress based on the decisions they make. We know that we can be the support team that a family needs to help navigate all of these challenges.

 

In addition, we have worked with many families who are ready to do everything they can to help their child, but may not know where to start. We are here to listen, provide education, advocate, teach, and answer questions about anything you need to feel successful and connected to your child. As consultants, we have developed a wide range of expertise through our experiences. We can provide online and in person support packages that are personalized to your family's needs. We additionally provide intensive trainings such as potty training and AAC. We are hopeful that we can have a positive impact on your family's journey to helping your loved one reach their full potential.

 

We look forward to meeting you,

 

Chrissy & Rachael
