Family Fun Events are open to individuals with autism spectrum disorder and their immediate family members. Children may not be left unattended, and must be supervised by an adult at all times. If a parent cannot attend, then a caregiver may attend with the child. There is no cost to participate, but you must RSVP with the total number from your family who plan to attend for each activity. For questions, or to RSVP, please contact Susan Voland at susan.voland@ttu.edu or 806-834-1331.

Social Skills Research Opportunity

Are you interested in your child participating in a study about therapy dogs and social skills? Graduate students and faculty members from the Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research and Texas Tech University are looking at how young children with autism spectrum disorder can benefit from the presence of a therapy dog in social skills classes. Please contact Kirsten Leatherwood at (806) 834-0834 or kirsten.shaw@ttu.edu for more information!
