Texas Tech University Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research
  • One Piece at a Time

    Texas Tech continues to solve the autism puzzle by providing state-of-the art facilities for community resources, education and research.


    The Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research at Texas Tech University is the premier center in West Texas for quality research, education and assistance for families affected by autism.

    The center was founded in 2005 through an endowment from Jim and Jere Lynn Burkhart. While raising their grandson with autism, the Burkharts were disappointed in the lack of knowledge in the community about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and its symptoms, as well as with the lack of help for families affected by ASD. The center was created to remedy these problems by providing services to the community, offering training in autism education for regular and special education teachers, and providing opportunities to conduct applied research to increase the quality of life of those affected by ASD.
