The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for a functional life skills after-school and summer camp program for youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This process entailed conducting an extensive literature review; locating a potential funding source; and preparing goals, objectives, an evaluation plan, a budget and budget narrative, and a timeline.
There is a significant need for educational programs that target the development of functional life skills for individuals with ASD to increase their personal and social sufficiency in activities of daily living. The proposed program will provide functional life skills education for youth ages 12-17 who are mild to moderate on the autism spectrum. The vision for this program is that it will improve the social and psychological well-being of individuals with ASD by improving their independent living and community participation skills so that they can engage more fully within the communities. The program will be comprised of an after-school component in which functional life skills are taught, a summer camp where skills are practiced within the community, and monthly parent training sessions.
The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement of the thesis project.
