Program Details

Autism is a growing concern for families and educators as rates of diagnosis rise: According to the Centers and Disease Control, 1 in 68 children have been identified with the disorder, which occurs across all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic lines.

To meet this expanding need, Saint Joseph’s University offers certifications for educators at different educational backgrounds and professional outcomes. The abilities and challenges of each individual with autism spectrum disorder are unique, so these certifications provide a comprehensive education in topics such as behavior analysis and social skills development to prepare you to assist and empower members of this population.

Those who do not have a bachelor’s degree or do not wish to seek Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA) Examination certification can opt for the Certificate of Proficiency in Autism Studies by taking only the five non-practicum courses in the autism studies program. Please note that financial aid is not available for this option.

Today there is a greater understanding of the specific needs of autistic individuals, which is driving a need for professionals with expertise in research and best practices related to teaching and caring for them.
