In the spring of 2001, Dr. Gladys Williams conducted a week-long class in behavior analysis at the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa for senior psychology students. Many of these students were participants in an applied behavior analysis educational project for 12 children with autism in the city of Mazatlán, México. The program objectives were to train teachers and parents (many of them with few resources) to help the children overcome learning difficulties. The project had the good fortune to be able to count on ambitious and intelligent student volunteers from the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa. The money from the grant was used to assist this group of students and parents in paying for travel and accommodations while taking Dr. Williams’s class.
