Autism is a growing concern for families and educators as rates of diagnosis rise: According to the Centers and Disease Control, 1 in 68 children have been identified with the disorder, which occurs across all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines.

To meet this expanding need, Saint Joseph’s University offers certifications for educators at different educational backgrounds and professional outcomes. The abilities and challenges of each individual with autism spectrum disorder are unique, so these certifications provide a comprehensive education in topics such as behavior analysis and social skills development to prepare you to assist and empower members of this population.

The Autism Spectrum Disorder endorsement is a post-master’s program designed for educators. The curriculum consists of four courses that provide a thorough foundation in the principles, ethics, and methods of best practices in ASD education for individuals of all ages. It promotes teaching skills that fill a growing demand in the special education field for qualified professionals who can provide specialized services for students with ASD. The Pennsylvania Department of Education has officially endorsed this program, signifying that it meets state standards for teaching education in this area.
