Autism for Multiple Disciplines
The Graduate Certificate in Autism for Multiple Disciplines, was created for individuals who wish to increase their expertise in Autism Spectrum Disorders, but who do not have a Michigan teaching certificate and are not seeking a state-approved teaching endorsement. This program aims to meet the ever-increasing need for advanced formal education in autism for individuals working in disciplines other than teaching, particularly those who routinely serve students with autism (i.e., school psychologists, social workers, behavior specialists, counselors, speech pathologists, occupational therapists, health caregivers and others).
