THE STORY:

In August 2015, I will be beginning my adventure to Kenya, Africa to raise autism awareness with The Global Autism Project. I will be travelling to spread knowledge about ABA best practices, and lend a helping hand to the professionals who are currently working in the field.
In many countries, it is a locally accepted belief is that children (diagnosed with autism) are possessed, and taken by 'bad spirits'. Lack of information and awareness about autism (and how to best address and educate students with autism!)is a catalyst for fear in many families thus causing isolation.
My hope is to help spread awareness, and hope to those families and children that have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. My goal is to raise $5,000 in order to fund my trip to Kenya this summer. Thank you SO MUCH for your support in helping me achieve my dream!!!
