The Global Autism Project is an organization promoting acceptance and integration of individuals with autism worldwide by training communities in culturally relevant and sustainable practices.
I currently am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst meaning I oversee and create programs and goals for children with autism using the principles of ABA. ABA is a scientific based practice that is currently the only medically necessary treatment for those with autism .
Global Autism Project takes people like myself and puts them overseas to establish centers that can provide ABA in underdeveloped countries (like Tanzania ) we teach and educate people in their country so that they can sustain themselves and prosper after we are gone . While we are there we may work with parents of kids with Autism, children directly, train and educate future BCBAs and therapists so they can provide the therapy, and even establish an entirely new center in an area that has never had ABA before (which i believe is where I’m headed in Tanzania). Whatever the need is for the country is what we provide 🙂
