#MakeItHappen for Red Autismo
Red Autismo is a nonprofit organization based in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico working to provide specialized care for children and teens with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). They offer evaluations and a comprehensive intervention to promote full development and inclusion in society.
In 2008 Red Autismo’s founders, Lemoña Aretos and Francis Doring, were faced with their own childrens’ autism diagnosis. Recognizing the lack of relevant experts and services in the community, these two mothers sprung into action to develop a center that would not only improve the quality of life of their own children, but would serve the needs of other children and families in the region facing the same disorder.
In 2010 Red Autismo began to work as a comprehensive therapy center offering individualized sessions and personalized programs. Five years later, they launched an education program called INEVI, which promotes the development of partcipants’ academic and personal independence skills to prepare them to enter the school system. Additionally they began to offer an educational program for teens and young adults providing them with knowledge an skills that will help them succeed in daily life activities and eventually as they enter the work force.
The International Community Foundation is proud of the work done by Red Autismo to make a difference in peoples’ lives every day. Contribute to this critical work by making a donation to support Red Autismo today!
