About Debra Solomon - Autism Life & Career Coach
Debra K. Solomon, founder of Spectrum Strategies, is an NYU certified life & career coach working with adults with Asperger's Syndrome and other learning differences. She advocates for these individuals and wants to help raise awareness of their abilities and challenges, as well as to educate employers and other professionals. Debra has presented to psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, employers, and to high schools and colleges.
Debra graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and Sales Administration and was accepted to the rigorous Abraham & Strauss Executive Training Program where she learned about sales, marketing and finance, and about the importance of networking and relationships. From there, Debra became a buyer at Bradlees and Zayres, and, later, a commercial real estate broker.
As an adult, she became extremely close to a family member who is a high functioning young adult with Asperger’s Syndrome and she realized her passion did not lie in sales or real estate, but in professional coaching. Debra uses her business background and personal experiences to help clients gather the executive functioning skills needed in order to succeed in the workplace and in their personal environment so they can achieve their potential.
Debra is the proud mother of three grown children.
She has a practice on Long Island and at Spectrum Services in Manhattan.
