UTC Students and FEAT Members

 An exciting new program is getting into 
 place at the University of Tennessee at 
 Chattanooga  (UTC).   Students  (primarily
 psychology and  education majors) will be  
 able to receive  practicum  experience  toward  their degree  working with  families
that have children  with  autism by providing respite and other assistance free of charge.  If you are a family with a child with autism and would like some  help  (number of hours per week will be determined  when students are assigned), please complete  the information below and bring to  the next  meeting or email  or  mail to
FEAT-Chattanooga, PO Box 23731,
 Chattanooga, TN 37422.

 UTC and FEAT are trying to get a picture 
of the number of children / families that will need  help and then work out the details of this  program.  We will let you know more details about  this program as soon as possible.
