Is This For Me ?

CLEAR is a tool for parents who have concerns, big or small, about a child’s potential to have autism or other mental, developmental, or behavioral health issue. This method works well for families with kids who are age toddler to adult. You do not have to have a diagnosis, or want a diagnosis, for your child to benefit from this program.

How It Works


Know what’s going on with your child.


Know what to do next. 


Create the best possible life for your child and family.
