Summer Communication Skills Flyer 2

The Burkhart Center at Texas Tech University is hosting a teacher training summer camp, and we are accepting applications from special education teachers who work in public school districts and are certified teachers.

The five-day camp will be offered twice in the summer, on July 10-14 and July 24-28.

The camp aims to provide functional communication training for teachers who work with individuals who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and limited communicative abilities. You will have the chance to work alongside a trained Burkhart staff member, providing one-on-one support to a child with ASD (ages 3-9).

Please note that this camp is also part of a research study, and data collected through participation may be used for research purposes.
