Show Notes

Discover what’s possible when instead of teaching someone to fish, you ask them what they like to eat. 

The CEO and Founder of the Global Autism Project, Molly Ola Pinney, is back on the show to talk about the motto that drives our work: #DoWithNotFor. 

For almost 20 years, the Global Autism Project has been providing sustainable clinical, administrative, and leadership training to autism centers seeking guidance around the world. Our SkillCorps volunteer program is an opportunity for self-advocates and professionals to travel to our international partner sites and collaborate with their local teachers and therapists. 

If you’d like to learn more about the Global Autism Project’s history and mission, please listen to my conversation with Molly in episode 2

In today’s conversation, we discuss: 

  • The meaning of doing with others and not for them

  • The "Essential, Preferable, Preferable to Me" framework 

  • Doing with the Autistic community

  • The importance of listening 

We also make two big announcements that we think will have a huge impact on the autism community. Stay tuned until the end to hear them!
