Fayetteville Public Library

Meeting: The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

Learn more about autism spectrum disorder and how the Access4Autism program can help.

Dr. Michele Kilmer will present information on autism spectrum disorder, how autism can affect families, and how the Access4Autism program empowers parents and care providers to better serve autistic youth.

A4A’s goal is to improve health outcomes associated with autism spectrum disorder in underserved populations by addressing barriers of limited access, financial constraints and other social determinants of health that negatively impact families with autistic youth. The A4A program of the University of Arkansas is under the direction of Michele Kilmer, D.N.P., an assistant professor in the U of A Eleanor Mann School of Nursing. Located on the Fayetteville campus in the Epley Center for Health Professions.

The Access4Autism program uses in-person and telehealth appointments to conduct diagnostic evaluations, care management and therapy sessions, including animal-assisted therapy, for children identified with developmental delay or behavioral concerns. The goal is to provide the latest evidence-based care for autistic children, helping them reach their fullest potential. Caregiver empowerment is an essential component of the A4A program. They use evidence-based strategies to assist caregivers to appropriately parent their autistic children. They also assist community primary care providers to deliver culturally competent services for families with children identified at risk for ASD, serving to reduce health disparities experienced by historically marginalized communities. 

FPL's community health programs are free and open to the public. No registration is required.
