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/BYRJgguxgaPmo3Q52



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.

Welcome!


The Center for Military Families



The Center for Military Families is housed in the College of Education and Human Development (COEHD) at the University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA).


The vision of the Center is to enhance the daily experiences of military families. The Center's mission is the holistic engagement with the often-challenging circumstances families experience in military service, with particular attention to the well-being of military-connected children. The long-term goals of the Center are to serve the military community through practical means, as well as through contributing to research and theory that aims to better understand how to mediate challenging circumstances in the lives of military families. The Center seeks to meet these goals by leveraging existing internal and external resources in a collaborative approach. In the process, the Center will become an integral part of the network of resources available to military families, and of UTSA's infrastructure.
