The Burkhart Center maintains an active agenda of research activities. Our focus is on conducting research that identifies effective interventions for individuals with autism, illuminates the behavioral and physiological underpinnings of autism, and informs professional training and development of teachers and other therapists who work with students with autism. Burkhart Center investigators and their partners at Texas Tech and other universities around the country are working hard to improve the lives of people with autism every day.
