Autism Spectrum Disorders

Graduate Certificate

Department: Department of Child, Family, and Community Sciences

The Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is designed to provide additional training for professionals. Course work focuses on knowledge, skills and competencies for working with students with ASD. The program is composed of four graduate courses that can be incorporated into a master's program of study in Exceptional Education or taken as an add-on to an undergraduate or graduate degree. A 20-hour field experience component is associated with each of the four courses. Pending state approval, persons holding Florida E.S.E. teacher certification may apply the four certificate courses toward State Endorsement in Autism (Administrative Rule 6A-4.01796).
