The following thesis describes a grant proposal for the Padres Pueden (Fathers Can) program. Padres Pueden is a strengths based, client centered, and culturally competent program that aims to enhance the quality and quantity of parent involvement among Latino fathers who have children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). A thorough review of the literature has revealed that, while positive father involvement produces many benefits for children with ASD, a number of systemic barriers inhibit Latino men from becoming active participants in their children’s therapy. As such, the grant writer proposes Padres Pueden, a program that utilizes staff training, direct outreach, and weekly psychoeducation and support groups to empower Latino fathers. Included here is the project’s purpose and objectives, a literature review, suggested funder, staffing pattern, implementation time line, and budget. Invitations and evaluations in both English and Spanish are provided. Actual submission was not a requirement for this project.
