This Fall will begin the third year of UW’s Certificate in Autism Studies: Theory & Practice. The course is directed by Dr. Raphael Bernier, who is an Associate Professor in Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at UW and Clinical Director of the Seattle Children’s Autism Center. This three quarter course provides professionals and paraprofessionals with an understanding of ASD at both the scientific and practical levels by linking cutting edge scientific findings to best practices in treatment and education. The goal is to provide greater insight into the scientific foundations of ASD that will lead to deeper and broader understanding of intervention approaches and their application. Participation is available through classroom-based and webinar options. To learn more, you can read the program summary or visit its webpage.
