About

This Venture brings Applied Behavioral Analysis techniques to a family center in Jenin, West Bank, training mothers to deliver this important therapy to their children and also providing a support group for those mothers. After training is completed, mothers will spend five hours a week in the center giving children ABA in a cooperative format, which will make therapy accessible and affordable, and also helps remove some of the stigma currently suffered by children with autism and their families.
