Advance your career as an innovative, compassionate educator.

It is vital that all students feel supported in the classroom. A graduate certificate in autism spectrum disorders provides specialized training for instructors with a specific focus on the knowledge and skills that will accommodate students with ASD.

With your online graduate certificate in autism spectrum disorders, you’ll be prepared to step into a leadership role on your campus. You’ll study the nature of autism, educational practices, communication techniques, assistive technology and more. As a certified autism specialist, you’ll be able to assist students within any academic setting, including inside the classroom.

Your graduate certificate through UCF Online can be added onto an undergraduate or graduate degree of your choosing, or you may incorporate it into a master’s program of study in Exceptional Student Education. This program, which is approved by the Florida Department of Education, incorporates field-based assignments to give you a hands-on experience with real-world applications.
