Track in Autism Spectrum Disorder

Autism Spectrum Disorder 

The Psychology major track in Autism Spectrum Disorder is designed to prepare students who have strong interest in child disorders for advanced studies, with emphasis in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). It prepares students who wish to pursue graduate school and/or careers in human services and research, such as clinical psychology, applied behavior analysis, special education, speech language pathology, occupational therapy, public policy, advocacy, etc. The Track focuses on ASD, ethics, research methodologies, evidence based assessment and intervention approaches, State and Federal Regulation, judicial precedents, and systems of service delivery.

The Track in ASD is supported by a generous grant from the Brian and Gale Paul Fund.

ASD is a complex neuro-developmental disorder that affects individuals throughout their life span in varying ways and degrees. ASD encompasses a very heterogeneous expression of factors and severity. Thus, issues of assessment, diagnosis, education, treatment, social services and support, family systems, employment, and independence require rigorous analysis and application of evidence-based principles within an individualized, person centered needs context.
