ICare4Autism is proud to partner with Narine Vardanyan with the International Child Development Center this summer, helping to bring autism therapies to the Armenian community.

Beginning in Mid-July, Ms. Vardanyan will join staff at Shema Kolainu – Hear Our Voices School and Center for Children with Autism, where she will receive in-depth training in Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). With the educational enrichment and experience ICare4Autism will offer during her one month stay, she hopes to return to her country and provide cutting-edge training to professionals in the Armenian community.

Ms. Vardanyan’s training program will include full immersion in curriculum development. This hands-on training will give her experience in ABA by observing the children, teachers, and therapists as behavioral improvement plans are crafted for each child.

She is making this trip across continents after attending the 2014 International ICare4Autism Conference. After she was inspired and moved by the conference speakers and their presentations, Ms. Vardanyan paid a visit to Shema Kolainu. Here she was able to tour the school and meet all the staff members, who will now act as her instructors during her immersive ABA training at the facility.

We are happy to join with Narine Vardanyan so that she can deliver much-needed autism behavioral therapies to her own country of Armenia.
