$1.2 million grant to provide UNT scholarshps for autism teachers

A new $1.2 million federally funded project at UNT will provide full scholarships to 40 special education teachers who are seeking master's degrees in special education with a concentration in autism intervention, and on-the-job coaching in evidence-based practices for students with autism. Systematic Training for Autism Teachers, also known as Project STArT, will furnish a professional clinical supervisor with a graduate degree in special education and certification in applied behavior analysis to help train teachers.

Housed in the College of Education's Department of Educational Psychology and funded by a U.S. Department of Education grant, the program will launch in 2014 and build on UNT's efforts to become a leader in autism research and resources. In fall 2012, the UNT Kristin Farmer Autism Center opened as a resource for families.
