Britteny has been an invaluable member of the team supporting Griffin. She fills a very unique role. Because of her background, she is able to help with setting up in home supports, coordination and collaboration with other service providers working with Griffin. She has played a large role in changing Griffin’s life and in a very short time. Her ideas have helped to really open up Griffin’s life and help him to be more involved in his surroundings.
Britteny has helped to foster Griffin’s independence in all areas of his life from self-care to cooking to communication. He is now doing things that we never dreamed he could do on his own!
The schedule system that Britteny helped put into place has given Griffin the information he needs on a daily basis to know what is going on for the day and what will happen next. Because of this, we have seen a very significant decrease in his anxiety and a marked increase in his willingness to try new activities. He now has a list of activities that he chooses to do and really enjoys!
Hiring Britteny was one of the best decisions we have made for Griffin as it has opened up his world and he is a much happier and much more engaged young man.
I have the privilege of working directly with Britteny and the adults we support… She is the most driven, empathetic, knowledgeable person I have met. Her wisdom has changed the lives many of the people I support… I am truly grateful to have opportunity to learn from Britteny… She is never satisfied with status quo, always seeking more independence, more communication success, more enhanced lives for all the individuals she work with. A TRULY DRIVEN WOMAN…..
Britteny Asher has been the single most important reason my son has become significantly more independent in the last year and half. (This is when she began working with him). His language and use of an augmentative communication device has grown exponentially. My autistic son is nearly 19 years old and Britteny’s expertise and problem solving is helping him achieve the necessary skills so he can live the best, most independent life possible. She has designed and implemented visual schedules in our home, observed and offered imaginative solutions to the school staff across different settings and been the chief organizer and resource for a team of people working with my son. Her flexibility, accessibility and creativity has helped me and our team support my son the best that we can. She has a valued network of providers that has helped my son expand his diet, become increasingly fit and more comfortable in our community. My hopes and dreams for my son are unlimited now because of the growth he has made over a relatively short period of time. I can wholeheartedly endorse Britteny and would be happy to share my experiences or answer any questions that a parent, agency or self-advocate might have.
“When working with Britteny in a highly challenging situation, I was impressed by her thorough knowledge of autism, communication and behavioral strategies as well have her ability to relate to others in both an assertive as well as highly respectful manner. In my 29 years of experience with autism, I can easily say that she is one of the best consultants I have known.”
“Britteny consulted for my daughter that has autism and hearing loss which impacted her communication. I am also a professional that works with people with autism and while I was capable of giving my daughter a good start on her journey I was unaware of the subtle ways I was also holding her back. Britteny wrote a timely and comprehensive evaluation that we were able to use in our home immediately. The best feedback she ever gave me was when I gave my daughter a choice of an activity in a cartoonish voice with animated gestures. Britteny respectfully pointed out to me that I needed to talk to her in an age appropriate way and that I was holding her back by continuing to use old methods of communication with her. The best advice I have ever been given and still today I try to do a check-in to make sure I am not hindering her growth.”
“When someone asks me about Britteny Asher Consulting, Britteny is always the person that comes to mind as the standard for someone who can reliably produce high-quality work and get results no matter how challenging the circumstances. She serves her clients with the utmost level of integrity, individualized care, and attention.“
“Thank you being such a fabulous member of our team. The client is not closed with VR but he is still doing awesome in his position. You’re expertise in your field was instrumental to his success, but above all, your compassion, patience, and persistence certainly did not go unrecognized. Thank you a million times over for being you!”
Your help, insights and guidance this year was a HUGE help to me today. I met a number of new people aside from the lab tech – a student, some faculty, some admin and IT folks. In all those interactions – some brief, and some longer – I was able to find things to say. Sometimes I asked questions, sometimes I just made comments, and for the most part there was minimal awkwardness.”
