THE STORY:

Hi Everyone!

I've been given the amazing opportunity to travel to The Netherlands in July 2019 as part of a SkillCorps Team for The Global Autism Project. SkillCorps develops and maintains international partnerships with schools for children with Autism; they currently have partner schools in 10 different countries! The organization aims to empower and train teachers in those countries to use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), an evidence-based method used to teach individuals with Autism. The specific school I will be traveling to is located in The Hague, The Netherlands, and works with migrant and refugee families who have children with Autism. I could not be more excited to be a part of this team!

The way their model works is this: schools around the world apply for a partnership if there is a need in their community for experts in the field of teaching children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Board Certified Behavior Analysts oversee treatment for students with Autism by putting behavioral support plans in place which increase that student’s ability to communicate and gain independence in their daily lives. Once a school has been accepted for a partnership, The Global Autism Project sends a team to that school to talk with the local staff and see how they can work together to come up with effective treatment plans for their students. The Global Autism Project provides 96% of the funding for these partnerships through the donations they receive.

What I love most about this organization is their devotion to sustainability and cultural sensitivity with the communities they partner with. They do not just give money or advice to a school and then leave. Instead, they team up with the local school staff to listen to their needs and work together to develop a plan to help the students in a way that is appropriate in their community. For example, in the United States where a person’s independence and ability to support themselves is valued highly, an important thing to teach a student with Autism might be work skills that will help them eventually sustain a job and make money. However, in a country where a person’s role in their family or community is more valued than their personal independence, a more useful thing to teach a student with Autism might be to carry out chores or tasks relevant to their family unit or cultural traditions.

In order to attend this trip, I am required to raise a minimum of $5,000 for the Global Autism Project. This money will go directly to the charity and helps them provide clinical support and maintain their relationships with their international partner schools, among other initiatives. Please help me make a difference by ensuring that all individuals with Autism have access to the interventions and care they need, regardless of where they were born!

I'd like to invite you to become a part of this movement! Please consider donating to my campaign to help ensure that children around the world can reach their potential and be a part of their communities.
