The autism spectrum disorders endorsement program is designed to meet the needs and interests of teachers and administrators who have the desire to increase their knowledge in working with students on the autism spectrum. Successful completion of the 12-credit graduate course sequence provides certified teachers with the autism spectrum disorders endorsement granted by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.

Students can choose traditional classroom or online setting for the four 8-week sessions. Courses in this program can be applied toward the master’s programs in Special Education or Instructional Leadership. Students receive one-on-one advising, attend small classes, collaborate with practitioners and administrators in local school districts, and develop close relationships with faculty with diverse experiences in K-12 schools.
