I am Angela Walker, I live and work in Enterprise, Alabama as a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) at Expressive Beginnings.
This will be my second trip with SkillCorps® and I am honored to have been chosen to aid in continuing to provide sustainability to a center in Africa. The purpose of this alumni trip is to set the tone for a new partnership. We will officially introduce them to the Global Autism Project, conducting assessments to discover/confirm deficits, and to empower them to see themselves as experts. These leaders are the experts in the field within their community and must embrace all that it entails. This is a one week trip that I will be taking from July 2nd-July 13th 2019.
I have been providing therapy to children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder for almost five years and could not imagine being in a different career field! I aid children in learning various life-skills so that they can reach their full potential. Each day that I go to 'work' I am making a difference in the life of a child, their family, our community, and our world.
