Training personnel to serve school age children with low incidence disabilities: Autism spectrum disorders  

This project's goal is to increase the number of Master's level professionals prepared for careers in the high demand fields of educating school age children and youth with low incidence disabilities, specifically autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The program will provide teachers and related service classroom personnel autism-specific knowledge and skills. Subsequent to completing the Master's degree Autism Spectrum Disorders program, individuals will be prepared to provide high-quality educational services using evidence-based and scientifically valid methods. The program will further allow students to combine intensive graduate coursework and high-quality and structured field experiences with learners in ASD in urban and suburban public school settings within culturally and linguistically diverse communities. These courses will be underpinned by understanding of effective practice methods and strategies specific to students with ASD. Project Status
