The certificate program, Autism Spectrum Disorders, offers a unique certificate experience that focuses on a multi-intervention approach to instructing children with different levels of disorders. These interventions include: direct one-to-one instruction, data driven positive behavioral supports, a total communication approach to language development, highly structured environmental engineering with strong visual supports, sensory strategies, and facilitation of play and leisure.
Graduates of this program will be able to more effectively address the following issues in working with children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: (1) academic achievement and study skills commensurate with their cognitive strength; this will provide the widest range of options of college and career choices, (2) social skills for navigating all of the environments in which they live, work, and play, and (3) problem-solving strategies that enable them to respond flexibly and successfully to challenging situations.
