My top 3 facilitators

Community organizations

Close collaborations wth community organizations empowered us to design community-responsive programming that responded to the cultural, linguistic, contextual and individual needs of autistic individuals in the communities served. They also provided in-kind resource contributions.

Attitudes

The openness to learning and including autistic individuals in communities where autism was stigmatized facilitated our ability to foster inclusive environments through education and community events.

Education

Our team's educational backgrounds in inclusive education, special education, autism support, international development, conflict resolution and translation and interpretation empowered us to develop programs that responded to communities' specific needs and created tangible and measurable impacts in the lives of autistic children.
