Specialized, in-depth training to build your expertise
Diagnoses for Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are occurring at high level with 1 in every 68 children receiving an ASD diagnosis. This diagnosis presents unique challenges for families, psychologists, and schools. Antioch University New England heard the urgent call for ASD expertise and established The Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders to deliver in-depth training in this area.
Educators, counselors, psychologists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, case managers, advocates, parents, behavior analysts, behavior specialists, and others will benefit from the specialized training offered by the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders.
Established in 2003, the Center for Autism Spectrum Disorders has offered numerous workshops, conferences, and graduate programs. Current offerings include:
AUNE offers both a Master’s of Science (MS) and Post-Master’s Certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is the primary, evidence-based, treatment for autism. Antioch has developed a training program designed to meet the educational requirements to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA®). Strong employment markets exist for individuals with these credentials.
Recently the Behavior Analyst Certification Board has added a new credential, a Registered Behavior Technician (RBT). The RBT credential is for direct implementation staff, those who implement plans designed by supervisors. The course content is drawn from the RBT Task List and is organized in the following areas: measurement, assessment, skill acquisition, behavior reduction, documentation and reporting, and professional conduct and scope of practice. These are skills necessary to be effective as a direct implementation staff member. This course is being offered on a non-credit basis with participants receiving a certificate for 40 hours of training and as a 3-credit course. The course is offered on Thursdays from 4:00 – 7:15 starting January 5, 2017.
This support group is peer lead by other parents. It is designed to be a place to talk about your ideas, resources, challenges and celebrate successes. It is free and open to all adult family members and friends of individuals with ASD.
