FAMILIES FOR EFFECTIVE AUTISM TREATMENT - HOUSTON Overview
Programs: FEAT-Houston hosts monthly meetings, conferences, network support and scholarship programs for parents, teachers and others involved with children on the autism spectrum. Topics address ABA practices, advocacy, and family support. Anually, FEAT-Houston sponsors 3 workshops called the ABC's of ABA--training parents, teachers and therapists in the essential elements of behavior analysis. FEAT partners with the Texas Association for Behavior Analysis (TxABA) to provide an additional 2-3 workshops entitled "The 123's of ABA" which provided further training. FEAT-Houston believes it is important for Houston teachers and therapists who are interested in furthering their knowledge of Applied Behavioral Analysis to have the opportunity to do so. FEAT-Houston has awarded scholarships to parents, students, teachers, paraprofessionals, and therapists. Because FEAT-Houston is dedicated to improving resources which will benefit our community, scholarships have been awarded for a variety of different educational opportunities, including: Texas ABA state conference, National ABA conference, ABCs and 123s of ABA workshops, conferences by nationally-known behavior analysts who work with individuals with autism, and college course work in applied behavior analysis (UofH and others). FEAT-Houston publishes a bi-monthly newsletter that goes to more than 700 people, operates an e-mail list of 1000+ members, a website www.feathouston.org and a phone line. These resources keep the community apprised of the many educational and support opportunities that are available.
