When & Where
TAP/The Autism Project at University of Texas
The purpose of University of Texas Autism Project (UTAP) is to provide a center of excellence for services, knowledge, and best practices related to living, and working, with children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
Our commitment to this mission is defined by:
- dissemination of the best available scientific knowledge through
- topical classes for university students
- professional development workshops for teachers and clinicians
- parent outreach programs
- advocacy for implementation of best teaching practices by
- providing information on evidence-based practices
- creating opportunities for direct hands-on learning
- creating a repository of information on current knowledge and best practices
- creation of a broad community of parents, teacher, clinicians, administrators, and scientists to engage in dialogue
- through the creation of “virtual families” (connected through technology and spanning broad geographical regions) to engage in dialogue about living in the context of ASD
- through clinics where families have access to educational specialists, counselors, and medical professionals for consultation
- generation of new knowledge about autism spectrum disorders and the effects of ASD on learning and family environments by
- creating affiliations with teachers, clinicians, and scientists across all disciplines to add to the body of knowledge about the amenability of ASD characteristics to intervention
- partnering with other educational services and organizations to test the efficacy of interventions
