Mano a mano: Uniting families of siblings with ASD hand in hand: A grant writing project
by Gonzalez, Kiara, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 58; 10046236
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop and fund an intervention program that provides a psycho-educational and peer support group to Hispanic parents and siblings who have a child or a brother/sister on the autism spectrum disorder. The goal of the project is to provide education, resources, and peer support for Hispanic parents and siblings who are currently receiving behavior interventions, with the focus being on the mothers and siblings. Behavior Functions, Inc. was the agency selected as the focus of this project.

An extensive literature review was conducted to examine the need for implementation of this program. The knowledge gained through the literature assisted the grant writer in developing a grant that meets the needs of Hispanic parents and siblings of children on the spectrum. Submission and/or funding were not required for the successful completion of this project.
