For those looking to add expertise in working with children on the autism spectrum, we offer a graduate certificate in autism studies that can be embedded in a master’s program or stand alone.

The advanced graduate study in autism spectrum disorders certificate program provides educators in regular and special education settings with the background and fieldwork needed to effectively assist children identified with Autism spectrum disorders. Families and other professionals, such as school administrators, guidance and adjustment counselors, social workers, nurses, and occupational and physical therapists, working with children on the Autism spectrum may also benefit from this program.

Please note: This program does not lead to a Massachusetts initial teaching license in special education.
