WHAT'S THE PARTNERSHIP MODEL?
COMMITMENT.
When you apply to partner with the Global Autism Project you are making a commitment to excellence. In return, we make a commitment to you. We are committed to listening to you, understanding your needs, hearing your stories, and supporting you in establishing a center of excellence in your community. Our solution and our model, rooted firmly in sustainability, is to educate local professionals, families, and communities in evidenced-based treatment and services to ensure high quality services are available worldwide.
COLLABORATION.

Our collaborative training model is predicated on the belief that the best person to teach a child with autism in another country is a person from that country. By building local capacity in schools and communities worldwide, the Global Autism Project ensures support for these communities long after we are gone. Our work is focused on providing our partners with access to the tools and information they need to become the experts in their community, are prepared to teach others, and promote awareness and acceptance worldwide.

DISSEMINATION.
A strong focus on sustainability sets our training model apart. The final phase of partnership includes a local dissemination process, which is the only one of its kind in the field of autism services. We provide training and ongoing support in evidence-based teaching methods, administrative, outreach, and clinical best practices to each of our partner sites, empowering these centers and their staff to become the experts in their communities. We create dissemination plans with each partner site to include community training, workshops, and rural outreach in their country. 


WHAT IS INCLUDED IN PARTNERSHIP?

-- Training and clinical support via our SkillCorps program and remote telehealth technologies for the duration of the partnership.

​​​​-- Training and ongoing support in administrative, operations, outreach and advocacy best practices.

 -- Access to Global Autism Project Institute which includes a library of BACB approved continuing education courses, professional, administration and parental and advocacy resources.

-- Access to an approved BACB course sequence for 6 identified staff.

-- Invitation for two staff members to attend  the annual International  Partner Summit.

-- Support in research initiatives and submission of research to ABAI.

-- Access to proprietary assessment and tools.

When you apply for Partnership you are also applying for a co-funding opportunity for up to 96% of the cost of partnership for 3-5 years.
How does co-funding work?

We recruit the best and top clinicians around the world to participate in the partnership with you. These clinicians fundraise for their trips and donate their time, skills and knowledge for the opportunity to provide on the ground training and support to your site. Each trip lasts two weeks and brings relevant, high quality, on-the-ground training to our partners, bringing them closer to becoming centers of excellence. When we are not in the field we provide remote training, support, and supervision to our partners weekly with our clinical team in the United States using innovated and state of the are Telehealth technologies.

 

There is an annual cost savings of almost $1 million achieved for our partners by leveraging the time of SkillCorps clinicians and professionals who provide training, fundraising, and travel. Additional funds required of partners are based on Purchasing Power Parity and ensures qualified partners can access our support.

"I don’t know how to express myself to thank for everyone -- I think, they will always be my good friends who always care about our dream, because Rumah Tiara is our big dream. They share their knowledge and make a plan and strategies to help Rumah Tiara grow, and always make us better clinicians than before.
