Becoming a Certified Autism Specialist

Teachers with a general teaching degree teach students who have been diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder every day.  But it is teachers who have taken the time to learn about unique teaching styles and learning methods for Autism students that are making a dramatic difference in the lives of Autism students both in governmental and private schools.

An Autism specialist is someone who works with children who are diagnosed with Autism spectrum disorder, which can include a range of behaviors and challenges.  Autism specialists who obtain an advanced Autism certification learn the specific skills necessary to work with these children and help them meet their goals.

The ITA Autism Training course will prepare you for understanding the challenges involved in working with Autism children and guide you in building your skill set to create a positive classroom that nurtures and grows all of its students.

After successfully completing the ITA Autism Training course, you will find many new and exciting job prospects opening up in your professional teaching career.  We have found that employers of international schools, private schools, learning centers and daycares have a very strong positive reaction to our teachers and their ability to teach any child, regardless of the students learning capabilities or challenges.
