Improve the lives of all those on the autism spectrum.
Through weekly interactive forums and special projects, you'll explore research- and theory-based evidence related to supports for individuals on the autism spectrum and their families. This, together with exploration of individual and family perspectives, will inform your critical analysis of approaches to intervention.
Preparing Educators of Students with Autism (PESA) is an online graduate certificate program designed to provide you with the latest research and evidence-based practices in autism assessment and intervention.
The program is comprised of five upper-level graduate courses focusing on autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The courses review current research and evidence-based practices in autism assessment and intervention and incorporate perspectives of individuals with ASD and their families.
PESA courses are open both to students who wish to pursue a certificate in this discipline and those who wish to take them on a stand-alone basis or in fulfillment of a graduate-level minor. This certificate program does not directly lead to teacher licensure.
