Jonathan offers one-on-one mentoring for adolescents and young adults on the Autism Spectrum. His goal is to support clients in expanding their comfort zone and experiencing new things while increasing their social interaction in the community.
My presentations offer creative answers to common concerns told from a different perspective. I relate to my audiences through vivid storytelling and personal experiences.
Jonathan assists families with understanding their child’s perspective and exploring new approaches and ideas to work toward long-term independence goals.
I can connect at any stage of the process whether the family has done extensive transition planning or just getting started. We can discuss independence in vocational goals, life skills, developing new routines, and addressing challenges in the adult world.
Thinking in Connections
"I highly recommend Jonathan Chase as a mentor and speaker. My understanding of Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as new insights to my own son (who is on the Autism Spectrum), is greatly enhanced by his viewpoint and education. Any child, parent, educator, or professional would greatly benefit from his experience, knowledge and wisdom."
"I have had the good fortune to hear Jonathan Chase speak at several events over the past four years, in different venues and in front of a wide variety of audiences. Each time, I am amazed at the power of his presentation and the importance of the message he conveys.
As a speaker, Jonathan brings a thoroughly engaging voice to Autism while confronting and highlighting the issues of acceptance, respect and self-determination."
"Jonathan Chase is an engaging and inspiring speaker. He comes from the inside out with knowledge, wit and grace. You can't help but learn from his unique insight about working effectively with people on the Autism Spectrum."
