Global Autism Project

Rating: 5 stars   57 reviews


77 Water St. Eighth Floor New York NY 10005 USA


To build local capacity to provide services to individuals with autism in under-served communities worldwide, and to address the lack of resources and extremely limited understanding of autism that plagues many under-served populations, we partner with autism centers established by local individuals. Our community empowerment model supports systemic change by providing family and community education through workshops and hands-on training. We believe in embracing the talent and resources of the communities we serve by furnishing them with tools that engender self-reliance, sustainable development, and continued innovation. Through this comprehensive, bottom-up approach, it is our vision to build a world in which all individuals affected by autism have access to effective services.

The Global Autism Project is an amazing organization that continually seeks to disseminate evidence-based practices for children with autism in low-resource communities such that these teachers can go on to train other teachers. Many other organizations will focus on doing one-time trainings with no emphasis on sustainability; the Global Autism Project is a pioneer in changing these methodologies so as to maximize their global impact.

Since I first heard about The Global Autism Project in 2011, I've been floored that none of the other big autism organizations in america are working on combating Autism in other countries. i chatted with their founder and learned that they had been working on this cause for ten years, and they are continually expanding into new countries, including Saudi Arabia and Indonesia! This cause is important to me because I lived in Indonesia and I know how difficult it can be to change entrenched attitudes about people who are different from others. I was shocked to learn that in some countries, Autism is seen as something that calls for an exorcism! And exorcisms include beating the child! Global Autism Project is doing important work on a shoestring, and I highly recommend that you give to them.
