Linda spoke at our Life after 18: Transition planning for youth with disabilities. Linda is highly informed and knowledgeable on the topic of transition planning, and shared her expertise in a concise, engaging, and understandable manner. In presenting this topic to the many parents and professionals in attendance, she offered an option that many have not even heard about; transition planning can change the course of the lives of people with special needs. Linda’s experience as a parent, educator and caregiver are obvious, as is her warmth, compassion, and desire to share her knowledge to help others.

Linda came to speak at our event for parents of children with special needs in Gatineau. Linda was very helpful through the planning of the event and promoted it through her own Facebook page. When she arrived at the venue she did not hesitate to speak to parents one on one, and offered to support parents who contacted her as needed. There are few resources for parents of children with special needs when it comes to planning the transition out of school, and the parents of the Outaouais really appreciated hearing her personal experience, knowledge and advice on early planning. She was a joy to work with!

I am so very grateful to have met Linda Mastroianni from Speaking Autism as she was a great support during some tough times we were having with my son’s school. She attended meetings and brainstorming sessions at the school and helped me build a rapport with my son’s school, teacher, principal, etc.. She assisted me with understanding the IEP and how important it is for us as parents to be involved and state exactly what we need for our CHILD. One size does not fit all and Linda guided me and I leveraged off her input, ideas and know-how. She is experienced, knowledgeable and dependable. I always return for advice and she is always so helpful. She helped me get MY point across and gain respect and a common ground with everyone involved in my son’s education. Every child deserves and has a right to an education, Linda helped me ease through a challenging time and we gained accountability and agreed on common goals for my son. Thank you Linda for making a stressful time a very productive and SUCCESSFUL one. Thank you for your commitment and your compassion and we wouldn’t have succeeded without YOU!”

Linda’s feedback for our T.Jacket isn’t just feedback… She tells a story that captures her experience without leaving out crucial details. Not only did Linda explain how our jacket works, she didn’t lose sight of what it’s meant to do. Furthermore, the way Linda explains how her readers can use the jacket is so easy for a first-time reader to understand. This is because she’s a woman who understands her son’s autism so well – both as a mother and a professional! Thank you for making others understand about us better!”

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Linda while working with her professionally in the last year. She is an incredible advocate for those with special needs, but perhaps what I admire most about her is her ability to work AND parent with both her heart and her head.
Her voice has (understandably) resonated throughout the special needs community, but also educated so many of those who are unfamiliar with the daily life of a family with special needs.
Although I have not had the opportunity to benefit from her coaching expertise, I have witnessed how she has used social media to educate and to make the world a better place. I can only imagine the power of a one-on-one session.
