Communication, Autism, and Technology  

This project will provide specialized training to speech-language pathology graduate students to improve communication and instructional support for students with autism. The CAT project will combine a longitudinal service perspective; collaboration among families, professionals, and graduate students; community-based fieldwork; a culturally diverse perspective; and indepth experiences with technology. Trainees will gain an array of research-based strategies and technology-based strategies for improving communication and learning for students with ASD (ages 3-21) and will acquire the skills for reflecting on their own practice and its outcomes. Project CAT requires graduates to complete specialized, academic coursework; and a two-year field experience with a student with ASD and their family. Project Status
