" Life Guides for Autism | NeuroGuides, what can we say.. David's enthusiasm in both guiding and assisting us in making and taking achievable steps towards goals is contagious. Coming from years of 'battling the system and so called experts' at last someone who actually listens and understands. He puts his empathy - feeling what we as a family are going through - into action by working together with us and guiding us forward. His humour at times is invaluable in those ' if you don't laugh, you'd cry ' situations. Thoroughly professional, I would totally recommend this service to other individuals and their families."
J. David Hall, the CEO and Chief Guide of Life Guides for Autism | NeuroGuides ™, with an update for encouragers, donors.
We believe that all human beings, whatever their unique neurodiversity is, should be able to have opportunities for success socially, occupationally and relationally. All persons should all be able to use their strengths, gifts, creativity to grow themselves, families, and their communities.

We work in a bridge building motion to connect our autistic clients with the best opportunities for them.

We also do individualized work with our clients and with individuals, companies, organizations who wish to build progressive inclusivity workplace cultures so they can tap into the rich gifts neurodivergent employees can provide.
While we cannot promise social success, employment, happiness in relationships, we do promise to use every method, every moment to equip autistic clients in such a way that they will be ready to pursue sustained, meaningful social connections, employment suited for the unique people they are. We'll even use our NeuroMatch™ service to assist with relationships, should clients so choose.

We're starting off with a force of one - Life Guides for Autism Founder and Chief Guide, J. David Hall. Dad to three autistic persons, he'll be driving the Life Guides for Autism-mobile, going to autistic clients, even bringing them to job interviews.
With well trained volunteers, future staff, allies far and wide for good, we've started a movement - one that will shatter the nearly 90 percent unemployment rate of autistic persons in the United States, guide autistic men and women to enjoy fuller relationships, social opportunities and enjoy richer, more engaged lives.
There are many government, social services and organizations, who work with autistic persons and have been doing so for many years.
And while we may appreciate the intent of some of these organizations, governmental agencies for working with autistic persons and their families, the reality is many autistic persons are simply aging out of schools, services and aging parents are left with doubt and little hope for their future.
Additionally, the high incidences of depression, suicide among autistic persons is a shameful stain on our relationships with other humans. Life Guides for Autism | NeuroGuides is ™ here to change the narrative, see actual forward motion in life for autistic persons - all who are fully human persons.
