Lubbock Avalanche-Journal - To continue supporting children with autism spectrum disorder during the coronavirus outbreak, the Burkhart Center for Autism Education & Research, housed in Texas Tech’s College of Education, is expanding its telehealth services.

"We've had success in assisting West Texas communities and families that do not have access to high-quality autism services, and we're happy to continue to help during this challenging time," Hamrick said.

This is a trying time for many, and we want to be able to help as much as we can."
