Update from the field-New Opportunities

By Amy Baty-Herbert | Project Coordinator

Dear Project Supporters,

Thank you for your continued support that is making an impact for Autism therapy in Senegal.  Below is a field update from the Dakar Team. 

Dear followers,
We have several pieces of good news a few weeks ago! Let's get right on it.

First, congratulations to our current behavior tech and office assistant Fatimata, who is getting married this month! We thank you for all your hard work these last 6 months at ABA Senegal and wish you nothing but best wishes and happiness in the coming years. Thank you for sticking with us through thick and thin. 

Second, in light of our recent discouraging news that the BACB will no longer be certifying individuals
as therapy supervisors outside of North America, a brand new, international grassroots credentialing association has sprung up out of the ashes! This new organization calls
itself the International Behavior Analyst Organization, or IBAO. The IBAO will be providing behavior analyst certifications at near-identical parameters as the BACB of North America. Adair has signed on as a Professional Advisor, representing the population’s needs within her corner of Africa. She will be a voice among many all around the world, talking about how education can be accessed in each region, including distance and online options, as well as cultural factors that may affect things like ethics training. Everyone has the right to an education and career path in the field they are most passionate about. Helping  professionals means helping families, and that’s what ABA Senegal is here for.

Third, we’d like to welcome our two new students these past couple of months. We hope to bring breakthroughs for all families we welcome into our care.

With fresh optimism in place, we shoulder on.

Until next time,
Your ABA Senegal team


Your support has made a difference for students with autism in the Dakar region of Senegal.  We encourage you to start a monthly recurring donation here to continue helping students with Autism in the Dakar region of Senegal.  Even a few dollars a month will go a long way.  Please also share this with your contacts and invite them to consider supporting this ongoing project. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at


Warm Regards,

The Dakar Team & Develop Africa Team
