Sandra Valencia, BA
My name is Sandra Valencia, I graduated as an interior designer from American Intercontinental University (Weston, Fl). My life path totally changed when my son was diagnosed with autism at the age of three. Since then I dedicated my life to take my son forward and to his full potential. He is now 12 and he has come a long way, we have overcome many obstacles together for him to be where he is right now. Our success is mainly thanks to ABA therapy, He has been receiving behavior therapy for 6 years, I’ve been so involved and learned so much from it that I was able to help my son and other kids at the same time. I became an active autism Mom, I got myself connected in everything that would help my son interact with other kids and learn. He is part of Special Olympics and we are also part of a foundation called Autism & Music for the past 5 years. We spread autism awareness and help enhance the life quality of people with autism through music interaction. This has been an awesome and crucial adventure in our life. I’ve also worked as a shadow at different schools with kids with autism. I found my passion and my mission in life through my journey with my son, which is to help parents and their kids have a successful journey as well, to help the kids be as independent as possible, to help them achieve their full potential but most importantly, to be happy. This is the reason I’m working as a Behavior Therapist with this great company, so we can join forces and knowledge to make the world aware and better for our kids.
