Students working with the ASD Nest Support Project

Support Packages

The Nest Support Project offers support packages tailored to a school's needs. We help administrators, educators, related service providers, paraprofessionals, and the entire school community better understand, nurture, and educate their autistic students. We offer a menu of different services including online training, on-site and remote professional development, and both on-site and remote consultation. 

Our goal is to help schools build inclusive learning communities where difference is accepted and neurodiverse learners can thrive.

The Nest Support Project also partners with public organizations such as museums, camps, enrichment programs, and afterschool programs to develop inclusive environments and practices to support autistic participants. The Nest Support Project offers support packages tailored to the needs of the program or organization.
