Developmental Models of Autism Intervention Certificate
Coordinator: Dr. Gerard Costa
Office: Center for Autism and Early Childhood Mental Health, 14 Normal Ave.
The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program in Developmental Models of Autism Intervention (DMAI) prepares teachers and other educators, mental health practitioners and allied health professionals to use assessment, education and intervention strategies to work with children with autism and their families. It provides professionals with comprehensive academic and applied experiences around Autism Spectrum Disorder from a developmental and relational perspective.
Courses are offered during the evenings and summers to meet the needs of working students, and individuals may complete the certificate program in just one year.
