Saint Joseph's College Online - Summer 2014

Join us this summer at Saint Joseph’s College in Southern Maine for “Autism in Society: Youth and Adults, High School and Beyond”.

Autism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention identify around 1 in 88 American children as on the autism spectrum. Increasingly, these students are enrolling into mainstream classrooms.

Whether you’ve yet to have an autistic student in your classroom or you work with one every day, it’s important you’re prepared to help that student succeed. Saint Joseph’s has designed a special topics course to help you do just that. 

This 5-day immersion course focuses on special topics for working with youth on the spectrum. The course will explore issues for older children and young adults, including transitioning to college and career, dating and relationships, and other “real life” realities and challenges. It will be of particular interest to those who would like more understanding about autism in adolescence and young adulthood. It is available for academic credits or CEUs.
