Beth FelsenSuccess Coach and Autism Specialist
Helping families and young adults navigate life with autism
Through my 20 years of work in the autism community, one lesson became painfully clear – as students get older, the resources available to them decline dramatically.
These transitions from high school to college and college to work are critically important. I have seen so many families struggle to navigate these changes on their own and I knew I could do something to help. So I started Spectrum Transition Coaching. We help families just like yours manage those transitions with great success and help young adults with autism thrive in college, career, and beyond.

Preparing autistic young adults for success in college, career, and life
I work one-on-one with families and young adults to navigate life transitions with autism. With specific, measurable steps, we’re able to overcome obstacles and help young adults succeed in college, career, and beyond.
