Additional Support for Families of Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder
If you’re unsure or confused about how best to help your child after an autism spectrum disorder diagnosis, the topics covered in the Autism Speaker Series can guide you toward making the most informed decisions regarding the treatment of your child.
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.
