Autism Spectrum Disorders K-12

The Master of Arts in Education with an emphasis in Autism Spectrum Disorders K-12 program is designed to prepare certified teachers and other certified school personnel such as school counselors, speech/language pathologists, and occupational therapists to effectively understand, teach, and work with students within the autism spectrum. This program highlights the various spectrums of autism and best practices, which include assessments, programming, positive behavioral supports, communication and language skills, and current research. There is a growing public demand for professionals who understand the issues and needs of individuals affected with ASD, and upon the completion of this master’s program teachers will be able to apply their knowledge when planning, coordinating, and implementing programs for ASD students. The program does not offer teacher certification from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.

For questions, please contact Dr. Janis Freeman at (636) 949-4649.

"Teaching and Leading as an Art and a Science"
The School of Education agrees that the general outcome of the teacher education program must be teaching professionals that believe and implement teaching as a blend of “Art” and “Science” as represented by the Beauty and Mechanism of the Spellmann Clock Tower… Teaching as an art because teaching is a craft that must be learned and applied in an authentic environment. Teaching as a science because it must be influenced by research and best practice for optimal student learning to be achieved.
