Leander ISD applied for and received a TEA grant for Services to Students with Autism (ages 3–9) for the 2021–2022 school year. One component of the grant is to increase Parent Training opportunities in Leander ISD for parents of students receiving Early Structured Learning Environment (ESLE) services as well as for other interested parents. This site will contain training content and other related parent education resources.

Each month, new content will be rolled out in an asynchronous format (on demand) at the beginning of the month and an opportunity to review and discuss the materials and ask questions will occur synchronously (live via Zoom) at the end of the month. You do not have to complete the training to join in the monthly live sessions. All are welcome! See below for details on dates. Click here to RSVP for Live Zoom sessions.
