Welcome to the program in Intellectual Disability/Autism

Our programs prepare students to work with individuals with disabilities across a range of contexts. We offer MA and MEd programs in Intellectual Disability/Autism leading to special education certification for teachers of students with and without disabilities in a variety of public and private classroom settings (e.g., general education classrooms, integrated co-teaching (ICT) classrooms, self-contained classrooms, and special schools) across early childhood, childhood, and adolescence. We also offer an MA in Severe/Multiple disabilities for current special educators, and an MA in Developmental Disabilities for those seeking a non-teacher certification interdisciplinary program focused on the study of individuals with developmental disabilities. At the doctoral level, we offer EdD and PhD programs. Across all of our programs, we offer specialized preparation for working with individuals Autism Spectrum Disorder and/or Intellectual Disability.
