Our graduates further their careers and assume leadership roles as advocates for individuals with autism spectrum disorders in schools, hospitals, social service agencies, nonprofits and research organizations.
Not only do schools have duties of provision for students who have differences, but these other institutions also need educators with proven expertise.
Teachers looking outside of the school system for their next career move will be well prepared with the BGSU Master of Education in special education with an ASD focus.
This 100% online program includes core subjects that emphasize evidence-based teaching practices. You will be shown how to identify and use research in your teaching and planning. There also are opportunities to be involved in research projects with others.
The majority of the credit hours required are devoted to identifying the characteristics of students with ASD and implementing evidence-based practices and strategies to ensure the education system serves all.
Note: This program does not lead to an initial teacher license.
