Autism, Added Authorization/Certificate

Did you know that autism has grown 600% since 1991?

We at Brandman University know that California’s teachers weren’t trained to manage the epidemic. We have sought to meet that need by launching one of California’s first state-approved Autism Authorization programs.

Our 4 course, 12 unit program provides either a CTC-designated authorization to serve learners with Autism Spectrum Disorders or a Certificate of Completion. Since Brandman classes are after hours and online, teachers can learn new skills and stay where they're needed: in the classroom.

Directed Study

Between class, lesson planning, and administrative commitments, it can be difficult for educators to find time for their own education and professional development. With Brandman University’s self-paced, online Directed Study courses, educators can find a course that fits not only their unique areas of interest but their busy lives and schedules.
