The purpose of this thesis project was to write a grant proposal to seek funding for a community integration program for adults diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The goal of the community integration program was to improve the overall quality of life for adults diagnosed with ASD, through the adaptation of the Skillstreaming Model. The Skillstreaming Model is a flexible, psychoeducational intervention with behavior modification techniques. A literature review was completed in order to identify the risk factors that the population faced. Additionally, foundations were researched for possible funding opportunities. Ultimately, the Weingart Foundation was selected as the best potential funding source. A grant proposal narrative was then written for the Autism Society of Greater Long Beach/San Gabriel Valley. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
