BENEFITING: WAR LEGACIES PROJECT
WLP is raising funds to send a young teacher from Vietnam for a 6 month internship at the Morgan Autism Center in San Jose, CA. Rates of autism are on the rise in Vietnam and there are few teachers trained to work with children with autism. Ms. Anh Thao will be trained by the teachers at the Morgan Center in techniques that provide individualized educational services for children with autism. She will implement what she has learned upon her return to the Gia Dinh Special School in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and will also train her fellow teachers at her school and other centers for autistic children in southern Vietnam.
