Program for famliesTitle of the Project: Testing a family service navigator program for low-resourced families of young children with autism spectrum disorder

About the Project: In this project, we are developing a training program and technology to help families of young children with autism access disability services. To develop the program and technology, we are looking for parents of children with autism to share their experiences in accessing services. As a participant, you will complete two, one-hour interviews. The interview may occur face-to-face or over-the-phone, depending on your preference. We believe that your experiences will help to inform the training program and technology.

Have a high school diploma or less b. Live in a household wherein the primary caregiver is unemployed c.
