Tamara Barthel

Two to four million adults in the U.S. live on the autism spectrum. Over 500,000 teens join them every decade. These individuals have some of the highest potential of any in our society. Too often, that potential is limited by challenges that can be managed with adequate support. More support is needed. I created “CReW” (Creative, Resourceful and Whole) to help teens and adults with autism live WELL on the spectrum and reach their full potential. CReW provides training, coaching and resources to teens and adults on the spectrum and their families.
