Meet the team: Sarah Statham

My name is Sarah and I’m the Lead Behaviour Analyst (BCBA) and Training Coordinator for the programme in Turkey. I’m from London, England and have spent a number of years working in schools for children and young people with autism spectrum disorders.

When I heard about the programme in Turkey, it struck me how difficult it must be to leave your home and country under such distressing circumstances, and also to be supporting someone with autism in that situation. I’m already inspired by the work of A Global Voice for Autism and am thrilled to be part of such an important project.

I’m very excited to see the progress that can be made with the children in Turkey and to contribute to really meaningful changes in their lives and the lives of their families. I’m also looking forward to training the teachers in Mersin so that they are empowered to support the children that they work with now and in the future. It will also be great to work with a team from all around the world and hopefully have a lot of fun at the same time.

Outside of work I like to travel, take photos, and explore new places. I do a lot of running and rock climbing, and this has taken me to a number of beautiful places around the world.
