When Luís came to the Association, 1 year ago, he ripped off the shelves, a mirror, the closet doors, he broke Joana’s glasses, plucked out Rita’s hair, hit Sarah and Alexandra. We've always believed in Luís potential. Today, he doesn't hit people anymore and he has been reducing his autism condition in 29%. Imagine what Luis will evolve being at the Association 100 hours per month!

Luís parents felt lost and powerless everytime Luís hit them, other people or even himself, everytime he wanted to destroy everything around, everytime he tried to express himself, but they couldn't understand what he needed

Until a year ago, there was no answer to Luís situation. No one could deal with his behaviour, with his agressiveness.

Nowadays Luís:

  • Can look other people in the eyes

  • Can have a conversation, ask questions and interact with other people

  • Stopped being agressive, turning into a more flexible and caring child

     

All of this was only possible, through an attitude of comprehension, acceptance, caring and dedication of all Vencer Autismo Staff. This evolution happened a long a year, with 380 hours of work, 6 hours per week.

But we want much more for Luís! We want to quadruple the number of hours and give Luís and his family support for 25 hours per week, a total of 100 hours in a month!

With the 1500 euros we can offer Luís those 100 hours for a month! If we exceed the value we can be able to offer him that for more months and boost his evolution.

Join us and lets help Luís recover and evolve as quickly as possible!

We count on you!

About the author

At Vencer Autismo we don’t put limits in the possibilities of children with autism! Since 2010, we've helped families to bring their children as far as possible on the bridge of recovery. For some, this may mean full recovery. For others, it will mean improvements in child development, human connection, communication, skills acquisition and quality of life, far beyond what most would have anticipated.

We have given free conferences in more than 32 cities to more than 10,000 people, training more than 400 parents with direct impact on the lives of over 300 children, and we facilitate through our Facebook page (+160,000 likes), in Portuguese and Spanish, more than 300 hours of video with techniques that help thousands of parents and professionals to better deal with children with autism. At our facilities, in Porto, we have several children and young people and we interact with them using the The Son-Rise Program® attitude.

Susana Silva and Joe Santos are co-founders of Vencer Autismo. Susana has a daughter with Autismo and she's a Mother (in capital letters) advocating for the unlimited possibilities of every child with autism today. Joe is a social entrepreneur nowadays he’s focused exclusively to Vencer Autismo and projects that have a positive impact on humanity. In TEDxOporto, his message received a standing ovation from more than 1,000 people.

Budget and due dates

Until December 31, 2015, we need to have 1500 euros so that we can offer Luís intensive support, of 100 hours, in January, at Vencer Autismo. It's an awesome Christmas gift and we need YOU to help us make it come true!   If we get more than 1500€, each additional 15€ will allow Luis one extra hour.

    Olá a todos!

    Olá a todos!
    é com muito agrado que vemos atingido o objetivo dos 1500 euros para o Luís. E tudo isto só foi possível graças a todos aqueles que têm contribuído para esta campanha: da nossa parte um gigante obrigada por tornarem tudo isto possível.
    Até ao final da campanha, o nosso objetivo é angariar o máximo possível, para podermos oferecer mais horas ao Luís.
    Apesar do objetivo estar alcançado, a campanha só acaba dia 30 de Dezembro, até lá ainda é possível partilhar a campanha e contribuir, pois todo o dinheiro extra que conseguirmos reverte para as horas do Luís na Vencer Autismo.

    Um enorme obrigada a todos os que já contribuíram e partilharam a nossa campanha!

    Abraços e Sorrisos,
    Associação Vencer Autismo
