Students in Bethel's Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) Certificate program come from different backgrounds within special education—and they all desire to effectively and compassionately teach those with ASD.
Throughout the 9-month program, now offered fully online, you’ll learn the all aspects of teaching students with ASD:
- Gain background knowledge of ASD.
- Build strategies for developing and administering assessments.
- Learn how to perform interventions and plan programming specific to ASD.
- Develop skills for consulting and collaborating with others.
Plus, with a field experience at the end of the program, you’ll have the chance to put your new skills into practice in a real-world setting.
At Bethel, our expert faculty incorporate faith into the program experience and create the environment to build lasting relationships. They care that you leave prepared and well-equipped to serve your students.
With Minnesota’s changing educational laws in mind, we’ve designed the program to help you prepare for the future. By January 2013, Minnesota will have a new official license in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Our current program is designed so students receiving the ASD certificate will be able to attain an ASD license with ease (specific details will be available spring 2012).
