Family Unwrapping

Dr. Shelley's

ASD Educational Consulting Services

Dr. Shelley’s consultations and training are focused around the ACERS Model of parent education and support that she developed and has utilized with families for 30 years. This model is a multi-disciplinary developmental and relationship-based program which centers on eliminating the underlying causes of each child’s unique ASD profile.


Dr. Shelley offers two services to meet your individual needs:

  • Private Consultations

  • Workshops in a Group Setting

Dr. Shelley's services will be the most effective for parents who are ready to make the commitment to helping their child reach the optimal ASD outcome. Dr. Shelley is happy to work with one or both parents during each consultation hour, even if they are each in different locations. Join families who have partnered with Dr. Shelley to reach for a brighter future—for your child with ASD, your family, and yourself!

"The education provided by Dr. Shelley to us on a weekly basis, including tremendous emotional support, helped us to see problems as opportunities for growth.  You can’t really fully understand something like this until you go through it.  Dr. Shelley’s role was also as our comforter and guider."

"Dr. Shelley Stravitz looked at the entire family system, and within that context was more knowledgeable than all of the other clinicians combined.  Also, Dr. Shelley could suggest effective “work-a-rounds” when the expense of other suggested clinicians was out of our budget."

"When my son was diagnosed, they said this: “He will never talk.  He will never go to school.  He will never have friends.  He will never tie his shoes.  He will never marry.  He will never have children.”  At this point, we can’t get him to shut up! He graduated from high school with honors, running a film club, and got a girlfriend now."
