New York, NY (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Autism knows no borders. Fortunately, neither do we. For nine years, since Molly Ola Pinney started the Global Autism Project, volunteers have been traveling with the organization to provide skills training to educators and therapists in other countries. The organization helps partners in other countries increase their effectiveness when working with individuals with autism. We work with local educators in their own countries in order to provide them with coherent, in-depth Applied Behavioral Analysis training.
In many other countries, individuals with autism are subject to local beliefs that they are possessed or other explanations that sometimes leads to their mistreatment. There is a huge and immediate need for training in this area. Global Autism Project SkillCorps members and volunteers have traveled to Ghana, Peru, India, and Kenya to provide training to professionals who work with our partners already located there. We received inquiries and partnership requests on a regular basis. We are hoping to reach other countries in the near future as well. You can read more about what traveling with us is like on our blog.
We are looking forward to traveling with Board Certified Behavior Analysts and other professionals who are excited about changing lives in populations across the globe. For 2013, we are traveling to Kenya, Peru, and India, where we train professionals. Professionals working with individuals with autism and other volunteers interested in traveling with SkillCorps should apply online at globalautismproject.org.
