Thank you for visiting my fundraising page! As some of you know I have dedicated the past 8 years of my life to teaching children with various disabilities and providing support to their families. During this time I have been blessed to work with many students that have changed my life for the better and have helped me to see the beauty and good in all. Three years ago I began my studies in Applied Behavior Analysis to gain insight into how to best serve the students I work with. I have since graduated and have become a Board Certified Behavior Analysis. I am thrilled to be embarking on a new adventure in a field that allows me to give back to a population of children/ families that have impacted my life profoundly.
I am elated to say that I will be joining a team of professionals traveling to Indonesia in July 2016 to provide training on research basesd interventions. This gifts me the opportunity to work with the incredible people at the Hi5 center that are pioneering a movement to support their individuals with Autism and their families.
The Global Autism Project envisions a world where people with autism have access to services that enable them to reach their potential. We works towards this goal by forming partnerships with individuals and organizations currently working with individuals with autism and building local capacity to provide excellent services.
Our mission is as follows:
We exist to address the needs of individuals with Autism in under-served communities Worldwide, to address the fear that plagues families of individuals with Autism where there are few resources, and little or no understanding of Autism.
We address these needs by first establishing and utilizing any available resources and setting up partnerships to work with the local organizations currently providing services.
The fundamental belief that all individuals with Autism and their communities deserve effective resources guides our work, as well as the belief that education leads to understanding and acceptance of differences.

Thank you for supporting me and this amazing organization that I am proud to be a part of. Please consider making a donation to my help fund all of the Global Autism Projects efforts. You donation will make my trip possible as well as implement change in Indonesia!
