The Autism Certificate is a complete online certificate program recommended for teachers, related service providers, and Child Study Team members of other professionals to develop a clear understanding of the characteristics of students with autism spectrum disorders, as well as to learn effective, research-based teaching strategies; social, communicative, and behavioral interventions; and valuable supports for use within the educational environment. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a science that works to develop methods of changing behavior. Monmouth University's ABA online certificate program is appropriate for individuals who would like knowledge of working with students with autism in a multitude of settings or who wish to pursue Board Certification in behavior Analysis (BCBA).

Graduate Endorsements

Graduate endorsements are programs designed for teachers and counselors who wish to change specialties or enhance their skills in dealing effectively with diverse populations in the schools. Students may earn graduate endorsements without matriculating into a master's degree program. Post-master's endorsements require a master's degree as a prerequisite. All programs are approved by the New Jersey State Department of Education.
