Burkhart Center for Autism Education & Research
Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update:
Burkhart Center Friends, Family, and Colleagues,
As we navigate this difficult time of uncertainty and anxiety I want to first thank all of you for your partnership, heart, and care for the autism community. I appreciate all you do for your family members, clients, students, and participants. We are dealing with an unprecedented challenge with the spread of COVID-19, and I wanted to take this opportunity to let you know what the Burkhart Center is doing to protect our community.
Effective immediately, all clinical and research activities are canceled until at least the week of April 6. This includes the Transition Academy, the Focused ABA program, PCIT, Theatre and Animation classes, Parent's Night Out, the Therapy Dog study, and any other center-based public events during that time period.
Following the CDC's and Texas Tech University's most recent recommendations, we are deeply saddened to announce that our 15th Annual Burkhart Walk for Autism Awareness set for April 26th is canceled.
For more information about the Texas Tech University response to the COVID-19 situation, and for the most recent details about that response, please visit the university FAQ here.
You are also welcome to direct questions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

MOCA - Mobile Outreach Clinic for Autism
The Burkhart Center was recently awarded a grant from the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) that allowed the creation of our Mobile Outreach Clinic for Autism (MOCA). MOCA can now bring several services currently provided in our clinic to rural and migrant communities throughout West Texas. *Information obtained through participation in this project may be used for research purposes.
Our website includes an extensive Autism Resources section. There you will find resources including an array of information about autism, evidence-based intervention practices, navigating the special education process, and links to tools and suggestions you can start using today.
This area also includes our downloadable Local Autism Resource Guide. You can use the guide to find out about supports and opportunities in the Lubbock and neighboring areas, including medical providers, specialists, social programming, community events, and family support resources.
