SERVING YOUTH WITH ATTENTION AND LEARNING DIFFICULTIES

"Charisma 'language' is familiar but different. I’m really interested in the tools and techniques, giving coaches the context and resources to assess each client's ability to set goals and to guide them through the program. I work with ages 11 to 21 but am already thinking about how I can use Charisma wording in my daily thoughts and interactions. The population I can serve is unlimited."

SERVING ADULTS WITH AUTISM AND SIMILAR DISABILITIES

"I can see many ways to use this program as a part of my current social skills training. Being able to transition from facilitator to a peer or friend role will help my clients become more confident and practice their social skills in new ways. I train adults with autism and similar disabilities in a pre-employment skills program, where I plan to deliver Charisma Virtual Social Coaching."
