Thank you for joining me!
I'm a member of SkillCorps. What exactly does that mean? SkillCorps teams are made up of skilled professionals and Autistic self-advocates working in the field of autism education. I will be traveling to Czech Republic for two weeks this upcoming February to train teachers that work alongside children with autism.
As most of you know, I'm a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). I work alongside children with autism in the school, clinic, community, and in home settings. It is a dream of mind to travel to foreign countries who aren't as forunate enough to receive the proper help they need for children with autism.
What will your donation go towards?
About 20% of the $5,000 goes towards the following: accommodation in Brooklyn NY during my 2-day orientation before going to Czech Republic; 2 meals per day in NY during orientation; one per meal day while in Czech Republic for two weeks; transportation to the NY airport with team for departure; work related transportation in Czech Republic; trained, skilled and knowledgeable leader who will lead the trip; overall trip arrangements and travel management.
The remaining 80% of the $5,000 goes directly to maintaining the existing global autism centers in keeping their centers staffed and running.
How will I be contributing?
I will be paying out of pocket myself for my flight to NY, my flight to Czech Republic, my flight home, remaining meals that the fundraising doesn't cover, and mandatory excursions.
Thank you for your considerate donation! It truly means so much to me!
