Aspiring Special Education Student Looking To Get Your Input Prior To Opening An Adult Service Agency

I met a young lady through Twitter recently. Rachel is a Special Education major and is aspiring to one day open an adult service agency for individuals with disabilities. She is interested in hearing more from parents about what they want for their child after they graduate high school. I encourage you to make the decision whether you share your information, or not. It seems like a straight-forward survey and the feedback will most likely help her to learn more about developing an adult service agency. Please read a message I received from her. 

"I have been working with individuals with disabilities for ten years. I do not know what sparked the passion but once I started doing it I was hooked. As I grew up, the people I worked with grew up as well. I had the opportunity to see my friends graduate high school and find post secondary placements. I am working to see what parents want for their children so if I develop an adult service agency I can take the feedback into consideration."

Please click HERE for the link to the survey. Thank you for taking the time to help Rachel out!

Series Beginning - Why Living with an adult HFA is Difficult - Highlights from Happy Robot Coaching

I am privileged to introduce a new educational organization, Happy Robot Coaching, that has been created by two very good friends of mine! Please feel free to leave comments either beneath my post below and/or after you have read their actual post that this links to. Thank you for taking your time to support friends of Nathan's Voice

Who Happy Robot Coaching Is and What We Do 

As a High Functioning Autistic/Neurotypical* couple, we have 40+ years of experience between us in communicating across neurological barriers. We have formed this educational organization in the hopes that we can help other NT/HFA people understand each other. We educate NTs in the skills necessary to understand HFAs such as giving complete information, speaking in logical well crafted sentences instead of emotional phrases and metaphors and using proper tone of voice. We also educate High-Functioning Autistic people in things to watch and listen for when communicating with Neurotypicals. We work with with HFAs in increasing awareness of who they are as individuals as well as educating them in how to improve their daily lives by teaching them better coping and life skills. We are available to answer any questions you might have about your NT or HFA loved ones either online or face-to-face (to which an hourly rate applies). 

We ARE educators and life skills coaches!

We are NOT psychologists, psychiatrists, medical doctors or providers or any other healthcare practitioners. Nothing on this page should be used as a substitute for proper medical care or supervision. ALWAYS contact your doctor or other healthcare provider before choosing not to follow their expert opinions regarding your health. Thank you.
