Individuals diagnosed with autism face multiple challenges especially when aging out of the public school system, such as finding a job or a place to stay while their parents are at work. A day program is a service, which can provide support for individuals with autism. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for the implementation of a professional staff training program at Nick's Community, which is a nonprofit day program. The major components of the proposed training program are conducting new and ongoing training to the staff at Nick's Community through workshops, small group activities, and hands-on participation. The submission for funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this thesis grant-writing project. Implications for social work research and practice are included.
