Parent/Caregiver Training For Spanish-Speaking Families Of Autism Spectrum Disordered Children
University Of Houston-Clear Lake
To meet the needs of Hispanic families of autism spectrum disordered children with limited English proficiency, CADD proposes to extend and modify their parent/caregiver training program model into one that is offered entirely in Spanish. Beginning in August 2012, bilingual Applied Behavior Analysis graduate students will recruit 12 Spanish-speaking families of young autism spectrum disordered children to participate in a seven-week training program. Training will be offered entirely in Spanish, with both group seminars and individual hands-on practice sessions with the children in the clinic and home setting. The graduate student instructors will be supervised by CADD faculty and board-certified behavior analysts.
