Curriculum and Instruction (Autism Spectrum Disorders) (MEd)

The MEd program in curriculum and instruction with a concentration in autism spectrum disorders equips individuals with specialized skills and knowledge to work effectively with children and adults affected with autism.

The steady rise in the number of those affected by autism has caused a public demand for professionals who are aware of the issues and needs facing these special individuals, their families and service providers. Program graduates will be well-prepared to provide important services and care for individuals with autism spectrum disorders in a variety of roles, including as educators, interventionists, paraprofessionals, psychologists, speech pathologists, behavior analysts or family members.

Each student completes a practicum customized to individual interests and abilities. The program culminates with a capstone experience in which students demonstrate analysis and synthesis of material learned in the master's program and evidence of competency in the six Council for Exceptional Children autism standards.

Students interested in sitting for the national Board Certified Behavior Analyst exam should apply to the master's degree in curriculum and instruction, applied behavior analysis concentration or the applied behavior analysis graduate certificate, depending on interest and need.
