Special Education Online Master's Degree and ASD Endorsement

The autism spectrum disorders (ASD) emphasis area offers an M.A. with an ASD endorsement or an ASD endorsement only.* The program is designed for highly committed and competent teachers in K-12 settings who have the skills, knowledge and dispositions to become professional leaders, expert practitioners and effective collaborators. You will learn research-validated instructional methods and evidence-based practices and you will have opportunities to apply those methods in authentic classroom contexts to become highly skilled practitioners. Throughout the ASD endorsement program, you will engage in clinical projects and practicums that provide opportunities to administer a range of evidence-based assessments and interventions and to reflect on teaching practice with the support, feedback and collaboration of the teaching faculty.
