Eric Homburger, MA

Founder

My name is Eric Homburger and I specialize in working with neurodiverse individuals, specifically those with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other non-verbal learning disorders. I received my Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Adelphi University in 2016, and my Masters Degree in General Psychology with a Certificate in Human Resource Management in 2017. I am currently attending The University of Maine for my Graduate Certificate in Interdiciplinary Disability Studies. I started Next Step Solutions NY in August 2019 to help neurodiverse individuals find college support programs and make the transition to college as painless as possible. My goal is to provide these students with the proper support system to find success in college and into adulthood. Additionally, I am the Assistant Director of Employment Services at Life's WORC and a Neurodiverse Specialist / Career Coach at Early Stage Careers, helping individuals find a career path that fits them best.  In all of my positions, I want to be an advocate for inclusive hiring and provide new, exciting opportunities for everyone!

Kayla Cusano

Intern

My name is Kayla Cusano, and I am going into my senior year at SUNY Farmingdale as a Psychology student and Sociology minor. Growing up with a brother diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder has made me passionate and sensitive towards the special needs population. Following my undergraduate education, I will be pursuing a graduate degree in School and Community Psychology. I am passionate about working with individuals with special needs and will strive to help others reach their fullest level of potential. I am eager to work with the Next Step Solutions NY Team. I look forward to assisting individuals and their families navigate transitioning to the next chapter.
