Plans for Service
“Nicole has supported my son, family and staff and has come up with unique ideas, tricks, suggestions when developing his individualized plan. My son has thrived, and has shown improved confidence because of Nicole’s influence and guidance. My son continues to gain independence, the feeling of control, an increase in communication skills, and is now finally in a peaceful place in his life. Nicole understood the complexities of autism and his intellectual disability which was key in devising his behavior plan... She is truly the best in her field!”
— Patty D.
“An extended family for my son! Nicole has supported my son since he was 3 1/2 years old and continues to be an advocate and extension of our family. She has helped with his social development challenges and worked with the school district and his schools for the past 6 years. She and her team were lifesavers during COVID supporting my son during home online school learning. We are very grateful for the team at Creative Solutions for All Abilities. I know with them on my son's team all things are possible for him. I truly love them like family!”
— Kira H.
“Nicole understands the complexities of autism and intellectual disabilities. She has been my adult son's behavioral therapist for more than 3 years. Nicole is knowledgeable, caring, and knows how to individualize care. She was critical in understanding our family dynamics and was able to be a strong advocate for my son as well as for myself. My son, who is now 32, has improved his communication skills, his ability to self-monitor his behavior and has increased self-confidence. I highly recommend Nicole and Creative Solutions for All Abilities.”
