by Rein, Megan, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 53; 1524151
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop a grant and identify potential funding sources to fund a staff training program at the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) of South East Ventura County to increase staffs knowledge of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) techniques when working with children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) in after-school settings. A comprehensive review of the literature was completed to build knowledge about the need for after-school programming, the benefits of participating in after-school programs, the benefits of inclusion for children diagnosed with ASD, and ABA interventions. The Amgen Foundation was selected as the ideal funding source for this project. This training program targets employees working in the after-school programs at the YMCA of South East Ventura County. Submission and/or funding were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
