Through Autism - Playfully

We are an association of parents and volunteers „Speak Autism – Spread Love“ and with this project, we improve the quality of life for families facing autism. We have been living with the neurodiversity of autism for 7 years and that is the challenge we are going through - playfully! Our intention is to develop a wider network of volunteers for families. The funds raised by the campaign are intended for strengthening the social and communication skills of autistic children through play. We educate volunteers, who, once the project ends, will be first association’s assistants. Campaign will provide assets for cycle of 5 workshops after which home play 1:1 follows. Weekly based supervision will be provided for 6 months. Amount of 70.000,00 kn will support training for 10 assistants who will be ready to support new volunteers later on and to spread the support network for more children and families. We look forward to our common first steps toward the society of our dreams: happier child – happier families – happier societies – playfully across the globe is our moto. Thank you for supporting us!

We are…

an association of parents and volunteers „Speak Autism – Spread Love“ and with this project, we improve the quality of life for families facing autism. We have been living with the neurodiversity of autism for 7 years and that is the challenge we are going through – playfully! In the past 2 years, we organized 2 international seminars for parents, teachers, and assistants: “Unlock your child’s potentials” and “Autism at school”. Over the last 6 years, we have educated about 30 volunteers who, with our support, encourage through play children’s communication and social skills. Our intention is to spread a support network for new families.

Why?

Autistic children often have challenges with social and communication skills and this makes their daily integration more complex. These families face huge challenges and they need an adequate support. When social awareness of autism is low and/or a taboo for parents, the child grows into an adult who didn’t get a chance to reach her/his potential and her/his active role in society is usually denied (at least in our part of the globe).

We know-how, with acceptance, play and love to unlock the potentials of these wonderful children and we want to inspire the world with our passion! Support us in this!

What will this campaign provide?

The funds raised by the campaign are intended for strengthening the social and communication skills of autistic children through play with educated volunteers. The campaign will provide funds for the implementation of education through a series of thematic workshops and organize the implementation of family work with the professional supervision of domestic and international experts of the play based program for parents and assistants Assistants involved in a 6 months training program will come to play to family home ones per week and will join a child in his play & follow his motivation & just go with the child. Home play is recorded and after each visit, assitant gets feedback and guidelines for the next session. This empowers assistant to become more skilled when interacting or just joining a child.

A team webinar with a game therapy coach is an integral part of the project

The goal of the campaign is to raise the amount of HRK 70.000,00. This amount would provide 6 months training for 10 assistants who, after the training, would be able to reach a wider circle of families through play engagement with children. New assistants will also support a grow of volunteers network i for new families.

Our goals

In the long run, our goal is to support:
1. Volunteers and future assistants who, with the support of the association, will expand the network of trained assistants
2. Parents who are ready to re-enter the labor market and empowering the children who are actively integrated into society
3. Inclusion and social awareness & respect for diversity – Different, not less; equally needed by the families of the children and the society in which we live.
4. The greater quality of life for families facing autism – Proud to be theneurodiverse approach
5. Change negative stigma – Be present because I am not absent.

Your donation enables…

By donating 50 HRK you enable the technical preparation of the recorded interaction of the assistant with the children for feedback (analytical review) on the work with the child by experts.
By donating 150 HRK you enable 1 feedback (analysis of play time) for the assistant/parent who provides specific guidelines and learning for next contact with the child. sa supervizorom.
By donating 200 HRK, you enable the delivery of one of 5 cyclic two-hour introductory workshops „Through autism – playful“
By donating 700 HRK you enable 1 hour webinar with a play therapy trainer for 1 child’s team.

The webinars and supervision of the whole project will be coordinated by Sean Fitzgerald, Son Rise trainer and educator with many years of experience working with autistic children and leading lectures for families and professionals around the world.

Our experience is that, the more hours a week children spend in this kind of interaction, it is more likely that they will build loving connection with relevant others, empower their interactive attention span and the ability to communicate their needs.

1. selection of volunteersadds in volunteers centers and presentation on few universities,
