Parent-directed Treatment Project
Parent-directed Treatment Project is funded by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Parent trainers will provide face-to-face treatment and/or online training for parents and caregivers of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Parents or caregivers will be instructed in how to improve the communication skills of their own children. Your child will receive communication/behavioral assessments and a communication intervention which will be implemented by you. A free group training webinar will be offered to parents on different dates for your choice. After completing the webinar, you will be eligible to participate in the individualized training with your therapist. Sessions will be conducted for approximately 12 to 14 weeks in total for 1-2 hours per session. This will include both group and individualized training.
We are looking for parents or caregivers who have children up to age 22 with ASD. If you are interested in participating in this project, complete the online application form. We will contact you soon. Thank you.
