Graduate Supplement in Autism
Within the past decade, the number of individuals diagnosed with autism has increased exponentially, as has the need for professionals who are trained in this specialized area. Barton has created a Graduate Supplement in Autism to meet this need. This special training for graduate students is ideal for educators, interventionists, psychologists, pathologists, behavior analysts, and family members, who want to develop more expertise in working with individuals with autism.
Our program consists of nine credits over three courses. The coursework affords an extensive knowledge of what works in teaching people with Autism Spectrum Disorder, and the fieldwork provides large-scale clinical involvement with individuals with ASD. The approach is comprehensive and covers Applied Behavior Analysis, natural learning paradigms, relationship-based developmental models, and common practices of teaching in the field of ASD.
Required courses for the program:
- EDU 560 – Diagnosis and Instruction for Autism Spectrum Disorders
- EDU 562 – Behavioral and Functional Assessments, Transition, and Collaboration for Autism Spectrum Disorders
- EDU 564 – Teaching Students with Autism: Classroom Applications and Evaluation
