Course Description:

Foundations of Evidence-Based Strategies: Toddler and Preschool Age
Early childhood is an important time to help young children with ASD to develop critical language and learning skills. With video examples in homes and preschool classrooms, this course will introduce you to evidence-based strategies that can be used in natural environments during typical routines and activities of toddlers and preschoolers. It starts with an introductory module, Many Faces of Autism, which addresses the characteristics of ASD, dispels common misconceptions through the experiences and perspectives of people on the autism spectrum, and provides an overview of five simple strategies that can be used by anyone. Learners then proceed through the Toddler and Preschool Age course and complete nine modules which focus on a range of social-communication and behavioral intervention practices and strategies through real world videos and interviews with experts, practitioners, individuals with ASD, and their families. 

You will register for the course using this Ashland University system and by creating an account on the Autism Certification Center site ( You will begin the coursework by completing the Many Faces of Autism and then continuing on to the Toddler and Preschool Age course. Both must be completed to receive the 1.00 semester hours of credit. For more information, please contact
