Burkhart Center for Autism Education & Research
Burkhart Center Friends, Family, and Colleagues,
Thank you all for your continued care for the autism community, partnership, and patience as we've navigated this challenging period. We greatly appreciate all you do for your family members, clients, students, and participants!
As our country, state, and Texas Tech University begins to take steps in reopening, the Burkhart Center remains committed to the safety of our community.
We remain intent on fulfilling our mission and I wanted to take this opportunity to provide an update on the Burkhart Center's path forward.
- We are saddened to announce that camps, family fun events, or other services that require face-to-face interaction will not be offered this summer. We look forward to future community events when we can ensure a safe environment for everyone.
- We have provided updates to the Burkhart Center Autism Resource Guide to include new online resources and the current status of our partner resources.
- All clinical services are now being provided through telemedicine and will continue into the fall. This includes ABA clinical services, the Transition Academy, CASE, and other of our smaller programs. If you are on one of our program waiting lists and want to learn more about what telemedicine will look like for your program, please contact us.
- In accordance with Texas Tech University, the Burkhart Center Faculty and Staff will move into Phase III of the COVID-19 Return to On-Campus Work Operational Phases with the intent to transition to Phase II later this summer.
- We anticipate our services this fall to be a hybrid of online and in-person interaction.
- The Burkhart Center will implement new policies and procedures to continue protecting our communities as we move forward in SAFELY reopening.
Thank you for your continued patience and grace as we work together to find ways to continue to support each other through this challenging period.
You are also welcome to direct questions to us at email@example.com
