A graduate student and preschool student have fun at a clinic session.

The Applied Behavior Analysis program at the University of Arkansas is recruiting preschool-aged children to participate in the fall semester of the autism preschool group. 

This free program meets from 9 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings from Aug. 28 through Nov. 29 on campus. Children who participate in the program are taught in a preschool learning environment using the methods of Applied Behavior Analysis. Each preschool child is assigned a graduate student in ABA to work with them throughout the program. 

Children must meet the following criteria to attend the preschool group:

  • Between 2 and 4 years old
  • Have a diagnosis of autism, developmental disability, or demonstrate behaviors consistent with such a diagnosis, and be on a waiting list for an evaluation
  • Have minimal to no vocal communication skills
