Summary

Provide our families with much needed remote training, advice and guidance to address and meet the needs of their children with autism, while ensuring our community stays safe, healthy and productive. On Monday March 16th, 2020 Venezuela woke up under lockdown. The pandemic is taking place under an ongoing severe humanitarian crisis in the country and mitigating measures to address the economic impact have yet to be implemented.

Challenge

1/54 kids have autism. Last year we served directly 589 families and, financially supported 81% of our students. We must continue to do so. For many persons, we are the educational alternative in Venezuela. As the global health/economic crisis unfolds, how do we: Help and guide our families and community under lockdown? Keep our teachers productive and engaged? Mainly, how do we do all this creatively and cost effectively ensuring our kids development and wellbeing today, and in the future?

Solution

We are addressing the pressing challenges by providing remotely via online, text and phone training, advise and working-at-home tools and ideas for our children's caregivers, as well as work from home guidelines for our personnel. Through out-of-the-box thinking we are also implementing cost-effective tools, programs and, cost-reduction operating initiatives to increase the reach and scope of our services. Our inspiration: The resilience and explicit request for support of our community.

Long-Term Impact

Continue to operate, provide and develop educational services to address the developmental needs of those with autism, with access to need-based financial support for all. In the face of hardship, our community has chosen the path of resilience. We are committed to moving forward, learning, improving, and being a role model for those living with autism. We seek to develop the skills of children/teens with autism and their families, in order to facilitate their effective integration into society.
