LUBBOCK - The $10.6 million, 28,458-sf Burkhart Center for Autism Education and Research has opened.

The Burkhart Center previously was in the College of Education’s building, and new building provides space to be used for both clinical and educational purposes, according to the website.

The center will offer a behavioral outreach clinic that will teach parents and teachers behavior strategies. In January 2014, the early intervention center will begin to help with young children who need services immediately, according to DeAnn Lechtenberger, director of technical assistance in community outreach.

The center is named after James and Jere Lynn Burkhart because of significant contributions they made, which made the facility possible.
