FREE Autism Training for Military Families


Do you have a child with autism? Are you interested in learning more about parenting children on the spectrum? If so, come participate in a project directed by Dr. Leslie Neely at The University of Texas at San Antonio. This project seeks to recruit military parents to have a young, adolescent, or adult child with autism. You will work with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst - Doctoral Level (BCBA-D) through an online format to learn behavioral strategies for your child.


Training Details

• Training is provided via online modules and video conferencing with a Board Certified Behavior Analyst-Doctoral level

• The curriculum lasts 5-weeks and parents should expect to spend about 30 minutes on independent work and 1 hour with their BCBA-D per week (approximately 7.5 hours total over 5 weeks)

• Registrationhttps://goo.gl/forms/ea78zZj4220OliN92



Please note that the project requires the families to fit the following qualifications in order to participate:

• Military affiliated family member (active, guard, reserves, or retired)

• Currently living in Texas but can be located anywhere in Texas

• Have access to technology to video recording interaction between self and child (e.g. video camera, cell phone, tablet)

• Have access to secure internet connection for training modules and uploading videos (e.g. DropBox, Eliademy)

• Video conferencing technology (e.g. FaceTime, Skype) for face-to-face with BCBA-D trainer



This work is supported in whole or part by a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB); therefore there is no cost to participate. For more information, visit the THECB Grant Project website: https://sites.google.com/view/texasautismtraining/home.
