League Consultation Services

League School for Autism > Autism Resources > League Consultation Services

League School is available to provide consultation to anyone touched by Autism – families, other educators, the community – so that we can make your world and the world as a whole a better place for neurodivergent people. We can consult with you in times of crisis, at milestones, and during transitions. We also consult to explore opportunities and pathways to success for students with Autism at League School and beyond.

Consultations for Families

Since the founding of League School, family has been a central partner in providing our students with the supports they need to live happy, successful lives.

Consultations for Educators

More than 55 years ago, when the founders envisioned League School, they saw it as a place of learning not only for children with Autism but also for people to learn how best to teach and guide these individuals. During the last five decades, the school has developed a team of highly skilled and highly trained professionals with a broad range of expertise, insight, and abilities. To fulfill our vision, we continue to offer professional development, training, information, best practices, and consultation to benefit anyone who supports and includes neurodiverse people in their community, including schools, organizations, and employers.
