In a crucially relevant sphere of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), a growing demand for special education services and higher graduation standards intersect in public schools across the nation. As the field of diagnosis in spectrum disorders continues to advance, ASD has become the fastest growing area of diagnosis within the disorder spectrum. Children with special needs are identified earlier in their lives, leading to higher enrollment rates of ASD students in primary education. GCU’s master’s degree in autism spectrum disorders provides licensed special education teachers a deep understanding of an educator’s responsibility to special needs students.
