Consultation & Training Services

Firefly Autism Outreach offers consultations and training from our clinical and consulting team with extensive backgrounds in autism spectrum disorders. For a list of therapists and professional staff and to read more about their backgrounds, please refer to "Our Team" page.



Individual Consultation
Individual consultation from one of our clinical or educational staff is available for families or schools seeking professional expertise to address particular questions, concerns or ongoing support to maximize individual progress.



School Consultation
School consultations are designed to support one particular student’s educational progress or a classroom of student’s progress. The consultations are meant to be collaborative between the current multidisciplinary educational team at the school and the consultant. The consultations may be designed to specifically address particular questions, educational concerns or include a more comprehensive assessment of individualized educational plan design, student learning, data-driven decision making, optimizing teaching techniques, and a team approach to educational intervention.

 


In addition, school consultations may take the form of paraprofessional and/or professional training on a topic of interest such as: characteristics of autism, social-emotional and cognitive development, adolescent development and autism, toilet training children with autism, and integrating students with autism into a general education curriculum/classroom.   

 

Program Development
The program development service is designed to work collaboratively with the professionals at existing or future program sites to incorporate empirically supported educational practices for students with autism spectrum disorders.



Training
Firefly Autism Staff are available to conduct training workshops for schools, agencies, professionals, parents or educational groups. Previous topics have included the science of educating children with autism, principles of applied behavior analysis, social/emotional development, problem solving challenging behaviors, critical transition periods, and successful collaborations between parents and educators.
