Additional Support for Families, Teachers, and Professionals
If you are a parent, teacher, or professional who wants more information about how best to help individuals with autism and other developmental disabilities, the topics covered in the Autism Speaker Series can provide you with additional knowledge and guidelines for assessing and treating behavioral difficulties.
The Autism Speaker Series is a free, monthly lecture provided by third-year graduate students in UHCL’s behavior analysis program and invited speakers from the community. Lectures are open to the public, and we ask that attendees register in advance.
Our 2017-2018 Autism Speakers Series will be available soon!
Check back for more information about our 2017-2018 Autism Speakers Series, which will begin in September!
