Dear Friends and Family,
In October & November 2014, I have the opportunity to travel with the Global Autism Project (www.globalautismproject.org/) to the Dominican Republic to work with Aprendo. Aprendo is located in the Dominican Republic and provides specialized Applied Behavior Analysis therapy. They also provide individualized programs for every step of the way. For more information, read the following blog: http://globalautismproject.org/blog/welcome-to-the-family/
As many of you know, I have dedicated the past 9 years to working with children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorders). It has been my passion to provide the best services to the families I have had the pleasure of working. From my first working with these children, I knew I was on the right path and I have never had a doubt since. I am currently working for Behavior Managment Consultants in Jacksonville, FL. I have also started my own business, Believe Autism, providing Dance and Art classess as well as tutoring to children with Autism.
In December 2011, I graduated from Nova Southeastern University with a Masters in Counseling with a concentration in Advanced Applied Behavior Analysis; and in March 2014, I was certified as a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA). One of my goals have been to travel internationally learning from and working with children with ASD, their families, and different organizations that provide therapeutic services. So you can only imagine my excitement at this opportunity to go to the Dominican Republic.
In order to make this a reality, I need your help. The program is called SkillCorps with Global Autism Project. The program fee for 2 weeks is $2500 which covers airport pickup upon arrival; orientation; most meals; hotels/ lodging; a brief family homestay; development trainings; on-going in-country support from experienced, well-traveled Global Autism Project staff; and medical evacuation insurance.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
