PEARLS includes a strong leadership and personnel preparation focus through multiple training and educational activities. Master’s and doctoral level students receive specialized training in autism and related areas through two Interdisciplinary Training Grants funded through the U.S. Department of Education. PEARLS faculty and doctoral students teach Autism Courses and faculty and staff offer multiple Volunteer Opportunities and Trainee Experiences to undergraduate and graduate students. The PEARLS Faculty and Investigators also take part in their individual academic, research, and service programs in Allied Health Sciences and Associated Programs.
