Autism Spectrum Disorders - Certificate
This Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders is designed to provide both a broad overview and specific skills relating to educating students with ASD in formal and informal environments. It is grounded in the belief that autism is a natural part of the human experience and that all students with autism can be academically, vocationally and socially successful given the right support.
The coursework for the Graduate Certificate consists of four courses, two required and two electives. Highly qualified individuals may petition for permission to waive one required course. Applicants are urged to consult the program coordinator for answers to questions, and to develop their individualized course of study.
