Partner with the Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M

  • The Center on Disability and Development at Texas A&M University would like to offer training at no cost to Texas parents and caregivers of children up to age 22 with core features of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Parents and caregivers will learn how to improve their child's communication skills. This service is provided by a grant project entitled "Coach to Communicate (C2C)," sponsored by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, and will continue to be available through the summer.

    The training includes a 1-hour self-paced webinar that teaches behavioral strategies to increase communication use in children with ASD. Once complete, there is also the option to be paired with a coach for a more intensive 12-week training specific to their child’s communication needs (again, at no cost to parents). Coaching is offered in English and Spanish.

    Pertinent flyers and letters may be found below.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at TAMUAuParent@tamu.edu.
