UW-Superior to offer autism courses in Rhinelander
The University of Wisconsin-Superior will offer a nine-credit program in Rhinelander this summer that will lead to the Autism Spectrum Disorder Certificate. This certificate is aligned with the standards set by the Council for Exceptional Children. These courses are offered both on the graduate and undergraduate level and may be taken separately or all three can be taken to earn the ASD Certificate.
The ASD Certificate Program focuses on current strategies, internationally effective best practices and recent biological research. Students will have an opportunity to connect with practitioners and specialists in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Dan Kuzlik, Outreach Specialist for the University of Wisconsin-Superior said, “Courses in this program will allow teachers, parents or other interested individuals an opportunity to enhance their skills and services for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder.”
In Rhinelander, these courses will be delivered via Internet Television (ITV) in an ITV location to be announced. The initial Foundations course will run from June 23 to 27, the Methods I course will run from July 14 to 18 and the Methods II course will run from Aug. 4 to 8. All courses are scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on these dates.
All three courses will be taught by Dr. Susan Larson Kidd, an educational/behavioral consultant for children and youth with Autism and other learning differences. Dr. Kidd has more than 25 years experience as a teacher, administrator, professor, speaker and author.
