Learn the basic knowledge for understanding the characteristics associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)
M State's Autism Spectrum Disorder certificate program provides basic knowledge about ASD and the needs of individuals diagnosed with the condition.
Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States and now affects more than 3.4 million Americans.
The 15-credit ASD certificate is offered entirely online, providing a specialized education for working professionals and for students who would benefit from specialized training in working with individuals diagnosed with ASD. The certificate does not lead to teacher licensure.
The ASD certificate program may benefit:
I am currently a special education paraprofessional at an elementary school in Fargo, working with students with autism. I think the program could help me professionally because, working with children with ASD, there is not a lot of background information for us to learn about. I learned first-hand through experience, by working with the kids. I think my experience and earning the ASD certificate will help me be a better paraprofessional because I will have the knowledge to improve my performance working with these students, and I feel I could help them so much more.
