Wasmer’s three-year appointment comes as a result of her successful volunteer role in The Guild’s 2009 “Cabaret for Kids” event earlier this year. Four hundred people attended the black-tie gala, helping raise $187,000 for educational and therapeutic programs at The Guild. As a board member, Wasmer will continue to advocate for special-needs children as well as help set organizational direction and offer insight for operational improvement. Through her marketing company Incite Creative she also will continue to work with clients the Association for Childhood Education International, By Their Side, Inc., the Kansas Coalition for Autism Legislation and other child- and/or disability centric groups.
“I look forward to extending my role with the Children’s Guild because I whole-heartedly believe in their approach to helping children and adolescents with behavior disorders. Having a family member with autism, I know the daily trials and triumphs my niece faces, and this motivates me to help other kids realize their full potential and make their own special mark on the world.”
A central philosophy of the Guild’s special education, group living, treatment foster care and mental health services is Transformation Education. This teaching style validates the way special needs children have learned to behave and think, and it uses that foundation to help them develop a new mindset for transmitting the values, skills and beliefs necessary to be successful. The three accredited day schools of the Guild are in Baltimore, Annapolis in Anne Arundel county, and Chillum in Prince Georges county.
