Ready to Learn was founded in 2019 to provide access to high-quality educational and therapy opportunities to underserved children with autism and their families. In Ethiopia, there are very limited opportunities for a child with special needs to attend a traditional school. Additionally, there are too few therapy centers and parental resources available for these children and their families. Ready to Learn exists to instill INDEPENDENCE by creating and INDIVIDUAL plan for each child using INNOVATIVE and IMAGINATIVE strategies. Our goal is that a student would complete the program with the foundational skills necessary to be successful in life and future academics.
Both the school and therapy center exists not to heal but to empower families and children. We look forward to coming alongside you in your journey.
