Summary

Every child should have access to reach their full potential. The Global Autism Project provides access to training, support and education to empower local educators to provide the services needed for children with autism in under-resourced communities. The program will provide clinical and administrative support and training to these professionals in order for them to increase the quality and quantity of services for those who need it most.

Challenge

Due to the linguistic, cultural, and geographic barriers in under-resourced communities, outreach in autism services have been limited in the past. In these communities, caregivers are forced to rely on potentially dangerous approaches instead of evidence-based practices, creating systematic problems like ostracism, seclusion, shame and at times, abuse. Without proper intervention, children with autism are not able to reach their full potential and parents and instructors are left without hope.

Solution

Our program uses evidence-based instruction through training of local individuals. This enables parents, teachers and caregivers to see positive behavioral, functional and academic strides that instill hope and build momentum towards larger community and systematic gains. By working in a sustainable environment, we ensure that the local individuals are able to maintain and build upon the training provided so that individuals with autism are able to utilize their full potential.

Long-Term Impact

We ensure that the training provided is accessible and culturally appropriate by collaborating with the larger communities and encouraging further dissemination. We build a systematic and growing movement towards full inclusion and acceptance by training in advocacy and awareness for individuals with autism. When we do this, it abolishes the unsafe approaches and reduces ostracism, abuse, and seclusion of individuals with autism.
