INDEPENDENCE THROUGH EXPERIENCE
I mentor adolescents and young adults on the autism spectrum one-on-one, helping them expand their comfort zones, experience new things, and socialize more fully within their communities.
NATIONAL AUTISM SPEAKER
Drawing on a lifetime of personal experience, I use storytelling, live music, and visual tools to present creative answers for common concerns to a wide range of audiences—from parents and service providers to educators and individuals on the autism spectrum.
WORKING WITH THE WHOLE FAMILY
I help families see the world through the eyes of individuals on the spectrum. Together, we’ll explore new approaches and new ideas for helping you work toward long-term independence goals.
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."
