About

The Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disabilities MA program offered at University of South Florida prepares teachers to be highly qualified and provide access to the general curriculum in least restrictive school environments to students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Intellectual Disabilities (InD).

Overview

The Autism Spectrum Disorder and Intellectual Disabilities MA program offered at University of South Florida meets the accreditation standards required by the College of Education, University of South Florida. The curriculum in the major is aligned with the conceptual framework of the College of Education and meets the specific standards of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

Major Research Areas

The major benefits the university, local community and the state can be summarized in two ways. In a quantitative way, the major meets the need of preparing effective teachers to work with the growing number of students in general and special education who are identified as having ASD and/or InD labels. This is demonstrated through the critical shortage of data at a national and state level and also in the surveys of local school districts to USF. In a qualitative way, the major meets the need to prepare effective teachers to work with this group of students that represents a paradigmatic shift in where and how these students learn. Students with ASD and/or InD labels need meaningful access to general education curriculum and their typically developing peers and this major meets this need.
