Nicole Kolenda our very own adjunct professor and former clinical supervisor, took a position this summer as the executive clinical director at the Atlas Foundation for Autism (www.AtlasforAutism.org). The Atlas Foundation for Autism is a newly formed organization that Nicole's friends and colleagues (Amanda Friedman and Alison Berkely) started as an evolution of their program Emerge and See Education Center (which has been operating since 2009). In addition to teaching and supervising at Hofstra, Nicole operated a private practice on the Upper East Side of Manhattan for the past 13 years where she treated on teams with Amanda and Alison. This past year, Nicole began consulting with them on a new communication (EVEnt) program and this eventually led to a bigger collaboration at Atlas. The Atlas Foundation for Autism encompasses three prongs of service for individuals of all ages with autism and other developmental abilities: 1) It will continue to include the services offered through Emerge and See (social groups / holiday camps); 2) The Atlas School will open in 2015 and will serve children ages 7-21; and 3) Treatment at Atlas will encompass speech, occupational and physical therapy. Atlas also has an innovative vocational program, which combines independent life skills with community integration and experiential learning. As the executive clinical director, Nicole is responsible for the Clinical Services Division at Atlas. She oversees all clinical therapies (Speech, PT, OT), both in the school as well as the educational treatment center. She is interested in student collaboration and can be reached at [Atlas].
