Beyond Limits Autism Consulting

What is Family-Focused Consulting?

Creating Dynamic Thinkers

My goal in working with families is to address the crisis faced when they are confronted with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis. Through play-based observations, and communication with the family, I am able to create programs individualized to the child and their family, that offer a developmental approach, teaching parents how to guide their child to succeed in reciprocal relationships, while addressing key core issues of Autism (such as motivation, communication, emotional regulation, episodic memory, rapid attention-shifting, self awareness, appraisal, executive functioning, flexible thinking and creative problem solving). Unlike other Autism treatment programs, my goal in working with families and their children is not to attempt to mask behaviours, or provide scripts for the child, but rather focus on helping the child to create dynamic thinking pathways. This will equip the child with the skills they need to navigate life's challenges, increase independence in daily functioning, thereby reducing overall family stress, and opening the door for a much greater quality of life.
