Description

Description

The goal of Partners In School is to develop and test a program that will improve parent-teacher communication about interventions for diverse children with autism attending public schools. With support from this enhancement grant, I will compensate parents and teachers for their participation, hire a student for data collection and management, and receive training from the Nebraska Center for Research on Children, Youth, Families, and Schools. Successful completion of this project will result in a new culturally sensitive tool for communication improvement, which is the first step for fostering family-school partnerships for children with autism.
