Undergraduate Certificate in Learning and Communication in Children with Autism

This is an opportunity to gain formal recognition for completing courses and experiences specifically focused on learning and communication in children with autism.  Students completing this certificate program will learn about communication development in children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and learn about behavioral intervention strategies. It is designed to promote interest in undergraduates who may be considering careers such as education or becoming a therapist. An additional goal is to promote awareness of some of the communication challenges faced by individuals with ASD so that participants in the certificate program will become more informed citizens in our increasingly diverse world. Completion of the certificate will be noted on student’s transcripts.
