This week's newsletter is sponsored by Seton Hill University's Online Professional Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Designed by Seton Hill's Education Program, this online program takes up-to-the-minute research and uses it to provide educators with practical methods for addressing the needs of students with ASD. Seton Hill created this graduate-level, four-course program with teachers (and their busy schedules) in mind, and in response to a critical shortage of professionals trained and certified in appropriate assessments and treatments for autism.
- The graduate-level Professional Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders is offered completely online.
- Teacher certification is not a requirement for admission to this program.
- Four comprehensive courses:
- Autism Spectrum Disorder: Theory and Practice
- Autism Spectrum Disorder: Strategies for Developing Social Competence
- Autism Spectrum Disorder: Applied Behavior Analysis
- Autism Spectrum Disorder: Assessment, Curriculum and Transition
The courses taught in the program can also be taken as part of Seton Hill's Master of Arts Degree in Special Education or Inclusive Education.
