Job/Life Coaching

Why Job Coaching?

Are you struggling with post-secondary employment options for yourself or your young adult child with Asperger’s Syndrome (autism spectrum disorder), Nonverbal Learning Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder? Are you seeking to understand why your son or daughter can’t get or keep a job?

The social demands of job interviewing are intimidating for most of us, but especially nerve-wracking and confusing if you have Asperger’s Syndrome (autism spectrum disorder), Nonverbal Learning Disorder or Attention Deficit Disorder. Active listening and appropriate responses are significantly challenged and greatly impacted during the hiring process, often resulting in a negative performance.
