What does NeuroGuides do?
We believe that all human beings, however they are neurologically wired, should be able to have opportunities for success socially, occupationally and relationally. All persons should be able to use our gifts, creativity to better ourselves, our families, our communities.
We help autistic people, by assessing their gifts, strengths, equipping, encouraging them and working to build bridges to connect them with the best opportunities for them.
We also present workshops, speaking events with companies, organizations striving to build progressive, neurodiverse, and inclusivity friendly workplace cultures enabling them to better tap into the rich gifts autistic employees can provide them.
While we will not guarantee anyone employment or success in relationships, we do promise to use every method and every moment to empower autistic clients in such a way that they will be equipped, encouraged and ready to pursue sustained, meaningful connections, employment on a path perfectly suited for the unique people they are.
What kind of organization is NeuroGuides?
We are a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization registered with the United States Internal Revenue Service as “Foundation for LGFA”
We are a social impact venture – a unique organization designed from the ground up to serve the needs of autistic people in all communities.
What is your fee schedule?
We do not charge for a consultation visit. We just want to get to know you.
If you decide to work with us, there is a one-time fee for the assessment we perform with you, the autistic client. Our hourly rate for working with clients, using our training / coaching modules is very reasonable. Thanks to the generous charitable gifts of others, we provide help for low- and no-income autistic persons.
There are no contracts and no burdens on already burdened individuals and families. If we can help work with you on affordability options, we certainly will. Work with us as you feel comfortable, part with us whenever you choose, and we will always remain a resource and guide to you and your family.
We are serving others to make an investment to secure a unique, bright future in a neurodiverse culture.
Where are you?
We are headquartered in Austin, Texas and go wherever we are needed to serve autistic persons and their families. Often, we are able to serve clients remotely through the use of video conferencing apps like Skype or FaceTime. If you’re concerned about our ability to provide services for your location, please contact us for more information.
If you are looking for a public speaker for your organization, business, corporate entity, or educational institution, contact us to inquire about pricing, rates, and availability. We would be delighted to come share our vision for building a culture of true neurodiversity for your business or organization.
We are members of the National Speakers Association (Austin) and have provided keynote speaking addresses for diverse clients on a broad range of topics related to diversity, inclusion, and multiculturalism.
Who are you?
We started off with a force of one– NeuroGuides CEO and Chief Guide, J. David Hall.
J. David Hall is a Dad to three autistic people, and he drives our NeuroGuides mobile, traveling to meet autistic clients wherever they are.
With well-trained volunteers, future staff to deal with our growing number of clients worldwide, the contributors of our partner organization at The Aspergian, and allies far and wide, we are starting a movement with the end goal being a future culture of true neurodiversity established in all communities.
As we work with and train others in businesses, we also recruit Life Guides within organizations to bring about greater impact in their own spaces.
Why are you needed?
There are many government, social services, and support organizations which work with autistic people and have been doing so for many years.
And while we may appreciate the intentions of many of these organizations and public agencies, the reality is many autistic people are simply aging out of schools and services. Other services fail to meet the autistic individuals where they are, declaring them ineligible for services if their observable level of disability is not obvious enough. Aging parents are left with doubt and little hope for the future of their loved ones.
Additionally, the high incidences of depression, anxiety, and suicide among autistic persons continues to reinforce the need for more effective supports for the autistic community. NeuroGuides is here to change the narrative and drive actual forward motion in life for autistic people.
