The College of Education and Human Services Graduate Certificate Program in Foundations of Autism Spectrum Disorder provides students with basic knowledge and skills necessary to teach children and adolescents with autism. In this program, students will examine the characteristics of individuals with autism and practice educational interventions designed for children and youth with autism. Additionally, students will investigate and critically examine the scientific knowledge and theory underlying educational practices, programs, and strategies for individuals with autism. Completion of this certificate program by itself does not provide for an Ohio teaching certificate or license. Students interested in teaching licensure programs should contact the Education Student Services Center (ESSC) at 216-687-4625 for further information about other available programs. This program is designed to be delivered in an online format.
