CAN Consultants' Collective

The College Autism Network is a community of practitioners and scholars committed to improving the experience of autistic and other neurodivergent college students. The individuals listed in this collective are members of CAN who have expressed interest in working with other institutions of higher education and organizations that are seeking to create or improve programs and services for autistic and other neurodivergent students. Consultants may be available for both one-time engagements and ongoing support of initiatives.

If you are looking for a consultant to assist in your efforts, we encourage you to review this list and learn more about these professionals and their particular interests. We are also happy to talk with you about your needs to help clarify what you may be seeking in a consultant.

To review our consultants and their areas of expertise, please visit our CAN Consultants’ Collective database.

To learn more or to set up a consultation, please complete our CAN Consultants’ Collective Inquiry Form.

Do you have a question about the Consultants’ Collective?

I’m looking for a consultant, but don’t know who would be the best fit for our needs. We’re still a little unclear on what we actually need. Can you help?

Please complete the inquiry form with as much information about what you’re seeking, and we will get back to you for a conversation about your needs and who might be a good fit. You can explore this possibility with no obligation to engage a consultant. We want to help you find what you need.

There’s a particular consultant we’re interested in contacting. How do we do that?

Complete the inquiry form, which has a space to indicate your interest in a particular consultant. We will get back to you with further information. Please note–not all consultants are available at all times. If the person you’re interested in is not available, we can discuss alternatives if you’d like.

How much does a CAN consultant cost?

Our consultants vary in their experience and expertise, and so their fees also vary. A one-time virtual webinar is very different from a one-time campus visit, which is different from an ongoing consulting engagement (if, for example, you’re seeking a more comprehensive program evaluation). Over the last year, project fees have ranged from $500 to $10,000; it really depends on the project scope, time involved, and the consultant’s fees and rates. It really depends on what you need and the time involved. We want to work with your budget and can guide you in this matter, but ultimately, our consultants determine their own fees.

Would we also be expected to cover travel costs?

It’s pretty typical for a host institution to cover travel (airfare, hotel, some incidentals), but some consultants might prefer an inclusive fee. Again, we will work with you to stay within your budget when we recommend particular consultants.

Do I sign a contract with CAN, or the consultant?

Our job is to help you identify the best consultant for your needs, and offer some guidance about cost. The host institution will sign a contract directly with the consultant.
