BENEFITING: GLOBAL AUTISM PROJECT
ORGANIZER: GLOBAL AUTISM PROJECT
Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! This July, I will be joining a team of professionals to implement the practices of Applied Behavior Analysis in the Dominican Republic. For those unfamiliar, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is an evidence-based science most commonly used with individuals with autism to make measureable changes in socially significant behavior. The past two years I have been working in the field of ABA as behavior technician. As a behavior technician, I have come to appreciate and self-define what would be categorized as a milestone. I have gained a new perspective on success and what it means to take each day at a time. I have learned the importance of something that might seem as simple as maintaining eye contact, or independently learning a routine, and the paramount of joy that accompanies accomplishing everyday tasks. Rejoicing in my client’s achievements is something that cannot be described, but felt. That feeling is what fuels my determination to continue grow within the field of ABA through research, professional development and practicing ABA on a global scale.
All donations are immensely appreciated, and tax deductible! Thank you for helping me fulfill my journey and impact lives of those with ASD while I partake in this incredible opportunity.
The Global Autism Project mission: We promote the acceptance and integration of individuals with autism worldwide by training communities in culturally relevant, sustainable practices.
