Since there is no current Kentucky certification in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorder, this program is designed to assist any teacher or person who has a minimum of a bachelorâ€™s degree with the opportunity to learn more about how to work with students identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
This program consists of five courses (15 credit hours) with practicum application of the strategies and demonstration of skills to work with students with this disorder. The classes may be taken as a single course or two for information purposes. Candidates seeking the Georgetown College Autism Program Certificate must take all five courses. These courses will be provided in an on-line format with some site workshops for hands on experiences and practicum experiences. The Saturday town meeting is required at the beginning of each semester.
Candidates applying only for this cognate program will apply online as a special student pursuing a cognateÂ only . Candidates who wish to take these classes as a part of a MA or Rank I program fill out the same online application, but select the appropriate degree program plus the Autism Spectrum Disorder Cognate.
