what is Autism Advocacy?Advocacy is most simply the act of pleading for, supporting, or recommending. In this context, TABLEWAR Charities has a goal to provide Autism Advocates (a professional position) to aide families with students who are on the Autism Spectrum through direct advocacy between the student (with the parents) and the student’s school(s). The Advocate will ensure that the child's needs are fully addressed and supported by the schools while counseling the parents on what to expect and, importantly, what falls short.
This is a great question... We have developed an approach that is creating extremely meaningful results for the student and their family.
Here is a summary of what we do:
We have also utilized our findings to help secure non-school related services as well. Throughout the process, it is important to us that our involvement be constructive and not destructive to any relationships between the student and parents with the school as we know both the child and parent may be walking onto that school campus for a number of years and we do not want that experience to be difficult or uncomfortable for anyone.
TABLEWAR Charities board has room to grow. We welcome individuals with a passion for Autism Advocacy and meaningful time, energy, and skills to request joining our current team. All director and officers of TABLEWAR Charities are unpaid positions.
