About the Work Group on Autism Research and Training

Community Outreach


In addition to its highly successful Autsim Training Program and Autism Resource Center, K-CART serves Kansas parents, professionals and individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder of Kansas through workshops in the Kansas City metro area and across Kansas, annual statewide conferences held in Wichita and Kansas City and special events such as the 2009 National Town Hall Meeting and the 2011 workshop on the State of Kansas insurance coverage for autism spectrum disorders.

When K-CART was taking shape in 2008, Director Debra Kamps convened focus groups that were composed of Kansas families and advocates. Since then, the K-CART Advisory Board, which includes parent and professional representatives, help guide the Center's mission and goals.

If you would like to be contacted about these events, please contact Sean Swindler, Director of Community Program Development and Evaluation, (913) 897-8471 sswindler@kumc.edu.
