Seeking children with autism to participate in social groups this summer

By Debra Burnett

A new research project is seeking children with autism, ages 6-9 years, to participate in social groups.  

Each child would attend one social group per week for eight weeks in June and July at the K-State Speech and Hearing Center. Children should be primarily verbal and have received a formal diagnosis on the autism spectrum. Families will be reimbursed up to $140 for any expenses (e.g., gas, child care). 

If you are interested, please contact Debra Burnett in the School of Family Studies and Human Services at deburnet@k-state.edu or 785-532-0802. Thank you!
