Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Empowering parents of children with Autism A grant proposal
by Leon, Gabriel Lee, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 67; 1523312
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop and fund a combination of support groups and respite component for parents and caregivers who have children with Autism. The Host Agency that was able to best fit the criteria of this project was Piecing Together, a division of Autism Treatment Services in Tracy, California.

After an in-depth review of the literature on Autism, it was determined by the grant writer that there was a great need to provide more family support to supplement Applied Behavioral Analysis services. A thorough search for potential funding sources led to the California Wellness Foundation as the funding source for this project. A grant application was composed to support this project.

Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
