University of Kentucky Offers New Autism Spectrum Disorders Certificate Program
The University of Kentucky is now offering a graduate certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders. This certificate consists of five classes offered in the summer and evenings. The content of this graduate certificate in ASD will focus on serving individuals on the ASD spectrum, across the lifespan. An interdisciplinary approach will provide students with a foundation of characteristics, etiologies, assessment issues/strategies, communication, collaboration, and research-based interventions used with individuals with ASD.
Students will learn to critically analyze current trends, issues, and therapies used with individuals with ASD, providing a comprehensive array of practical research-based instructional approaches to use. An emphasis on collaboration with families and other professionals, facilitating access to the general curriculum, and appropriate assessment will be included throughout coursework.
The ASD certificate will culminate in a face-to-face institute where students will connect content knowledge for courses taken with practical applications. The majority of the courses are offered in the summer via Adobe Connect. For more information, please contact Dr. Amy Spriggs at firstname.lastname@example.org or 859-257-9105.
