The Graduate Certificate in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) provides additional training for educators and related service providers. Course work focuses on knowledge, skills, and competencies for working with students with ASD. The program’s four courses can be incorporated into an Exceptional Education master’s degree or taken to supplement an undergraduate or graduate degree. UCF’s ASD certificate has been approved by the Florida Department of Education as meeting requirements for State Endorsement in Autism (Administrative Rule 6A-4.01796). Individuals holding the Florida ESE teacher certification may apply the four certificate courses toward the endorsement.

Official catalog information including application deadlines, curriculum requirements and program restrictions can be found in the UCF Graduate Catalog.
