For over fifteen years, the Global Autism Project has been working with educators, leaders, and visionaries who are working toward one, shared vision: Create a more accepting, inclusive world for people with autism. While our partners have been collaborating with our team and other professionals in the field of autism education through our SkillCorps® program, something has been missing... the opportunity to collaborate directly with each other! Global Summit was created and designed to provide a platform for cross-cultural collaboration between our International Partners, outstanding SkillCorps® Alumni, and experts from relevant fields!
I have been fortunate enough to travel to Nicaragua, the Netherlands, and the Dominican Republic with the Global Autism Project. This summer I will travel to India. I am so grateful for the opportunity to connect with autism professionals from other countries to help bring back to my classroom here in North Carolina. In the United States we have a very diverse society and it is important for me to be able to impact families in a positive way, no matter what their culture or background is.
