    Hi I'm taking care of my angel with autism . We live together in an appart.
    I try many terapies with him , at the beginning I tried to do many tasks in a row, preparing the recepies for his diet , preparing the activities, working with him the ABA natural play therapy session to work on his development skills, work on his independent skills, do Padovan exercises, prepare the meals take him to his thearapy sessions, to the sport club, take him to school.. In the end of trying to be a supernatural I had a burn out And I couldn't do this all by my self.. 😨😨 I needed a break and an experience that can inspire me and make a big change in our daily life!
    This experience offers me alot of opportunities , one of them is to meet other people from Worldwide who can inspire me to be a better person and to explore more horizons that can help us to continue fighting ,second This lifestyle offers a lot of flexibility to me and bring a balance to my life . Also as I love traveling and hearing stories about new cultures , it was an amazing experience . Since the last year, I had the pleasure of hosting many people through many websites from worldwide .
    I joined workaway because I want to meet people who loves volunteering and can stay for long period ( minimum 2 weeks) and help us in our dialy life..
    So If one of you is excited to travel to Morocco and join us you are very welcome in our house .
    I'm Siham I have ( biology degree from university) I love archeology , swimming, I like to explore news things...I'm very very quiet but I can be very talkative when the conversations contain some of my interests , I like literature , reading books , playing guitar, Andalusian music) and Hlussam who have autism likes swimming, playing ball ball ball ball .

    Intercambio cultural y oportunidades de aprendizaje

    - I would like to show you how life is like in Morocco, to make you discover our traditions, music, food , architecture and many other things in the moroccan culture.
    - Our volunteers are welcome to stay from two weeks to a month .
    - You will have the opportunity to discover our Moroccan spices and all special meals because I can cook some healthy food mad from the fresh local rural products.
    - I can hang out with you if we can and show you around in Tetouan city and towns nearby.

    - In sundays I sometimes chill out in the Hamam you can come with me it's an authentic experience , however some weekends I just like to have my home day to chill and have my one time for my self , so it's a day without cooking . You can also go every week-end to visit other Moroccan cities nearby.

    - I can also help you organize a very cheap trips to other cities not that far away from our town by giving you recommendations .

    - You can have the opportunity to learn Darija, Arabic and French , I'm Talkative and also like to hear about other people's life, culture and experiences ( I passed a part of my childhood as a british kid with a moroccan background raised by an uncle from pakistan 😊 I have a lot to tell you about my intresting childhood) so we can have intresting conversations .
    - Making a small changes in Houssam's daily life and seeing his progress can inspire you and gives you an opportunity to feel a sincere rejoicing and pride.

    - Practice being creative and trying out new and exciting ways of introducing new games.

    - in our daily life we need to be detectives and find out what houssam's motivations are, what makes him over stimulated, what makes him over excited and anxious... what happened before and after his behaviour , so I think every moment is an opportunity to discover something new about our child and about the autism mystery that can be a new opportunity to learn .

    - you will have the opportunity to enjoy houssam's joy and excitement for simple things in life like watching a water fall or just having a shower ,the way he express his happiness is one of the most beautiful things that happens in my life ,and also most volunteers enjoy it .

    I'm looking forward to meet volunteer who can share some moments of joy and help me to find a balance in our home .
    If you have any skills in one of these areas:
    - Sport for special need children (swimming or playing football, ping pong ... ).
    - ABA , Teach , Pecs , functional neurology , Padovan , or any other thechniques that could help him to be more independent and happy.
    - I would like to make recycling and reuse of objects to create tools and objects that we can use in our therapies
    - Make Houssam's room more peaceful to help him reduce the amount of anxiety,
    - help me to learn new ways for relaxation and and self care.
    - I would appreciate a hand in creating a beautiful and calm environment. It could be a creative experience for both.
    -I'm also interested on music therapy.
    - Houssam is still nonverbal, he can say some few words. To help him communicate, we have already started with him a communication aid book and we use PECS. However he can understand and interact in his own way. It's important to learn some arabic words the first three days when you come if the help you are offering is interacting with Houssam, I can help you to learn some fews Arabic words so he can understand you when you play with him ( for example the word ball..)
    - He likes to play ball, to swim, to jump in gym ball or trampoline, to play with playdoo and he loves tickling ,massage games, and hearing songs.
    - I would like a help in cleaning the house or cooking.
    - help on preparing some tools in the computer.
