Grants of up to $1,000 to educators and professionals at Louisiana schools who propose innovative and creative methods for teaching children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) in one of the following eight parishes: Acadia, Avoyelles, Evangeline, Lafayette, New Iberia, St. Landry, St. Martin, and Vermilion.

Checks for grant awards will be made out to the school where the project will be implemented or to the school system, if the project will involve multiple schools. All materials, supplies, and/or equipment purchased with Autism Society Acadiana funds for the funded project will remain with that school or school system if the person responsible for implementation is no longer employed at the school or school district for any reason.

Proposals must specify one or more measures by which program success will be evaluated if funded.
