Introduction: During the summer of 2019, Truelove has organized a 1-to-1 ABA Summer Program. During late May, volunteer signed up to participate in the event. Volunteers get trained by ABA specialist and learn how to take care of autistic children. Then, volunteers are assigned to different families. During the first few days, volunteer and family meet up to discuss their plans for over the summer. After that, the volunteer will come to the families’ home and help them take care of the autistic child. They use the skill they learn from the ABA specialist and apply them to real-world examples. Overall, the volunteer will learn more about autism, and families get the good need to break over the summer.
This program has started, and we keep receiving positive feedback from parents. Here are some examples:
