Why Enroll in the Autism Education Endorsement Courses at Barry University?
Today one in every 150 children in the U.S. is identified as autistic. The specialized field of autism is expanding rapidly. There is a critical shortage of teachers who are qualified to work with these students—jobs are available in this specialized area. To qualify for a teaching position to work with autistic children requires that you obtain an Endorsement in Autism.
Only four courses (12 credits) beyond a valid certificate in special education or Exceptional Student Education (ESE) are needed for the endorsement.
You may complete the four endorsement courses at Barry University within two short semesters to qualify to teach students with autism.
Endorsement courses may be added to a Bachelor's or Master's degree in ESE.
Courses needed are:
- ESE 673 - Nature and Needs of Autism
- ESE 583A - Educational Assessment of Students with Exceptionalities: Focus on Autism
- ESE 527A - Management of Students with Emotional and/or Behavioral Disorders: Focus on Autism
- ESE 683 - Instructional Strategies for Students with Autism: Technological and Communication Interventions
