According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 in 68 children has been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). ASD is reported in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups. The primary purpose of this 4-course certificate sequence is to prepare experienced educators, administrators, and related service providers to assume a leadership role in the development and implementation of educational programs for students with autism in school settings. This certificate program gives you the critical knowledge and practical skills necessary to address the needs of children and students across the autism spectrum.
The certificate program includes four courses (a total of 12 credits). Students will complete this Graduate Certificate in one fiscal year by enrolling in one course per semester. Courses are taken in sequence to build knowledge and understanding.
