The CSUSM's ASD AA program is comprised of two, 3-unit courses. The courses can be taken in the same or in different semesters.
Together these courses examine characteristics, assessments, instruction, and diverse supports (inclusive of AAC and other technological supports) for students with ASD and directly meet the new ASD AA standards. Participants will have the opportunity to share and learn from one another their successes in supporting students on the autism spectrum.
