    Hi Dianabay,

    Is this certificate for nurses or teachers? What college do you get this from? I am very interested in ASD care as an NP.

    Hi medictoRN:

    There is no formal education in autism forRNs; I know...I searched and searched. I took the certificate program at JMU (James Madison University) in Harrisonberg, Virginia. The courses were 400 level courses in exceptional education; all of my classmates had their Masters in special education, so I learned a great deal from them. The courses were defintely geared toward classroom management, but absolutely applicable to all settings. It was an excellent program, and you can do it online!

    Since no one seems to be interested in me due to my lack of recent acute care experience, I am now considering doing some case management courses and hope to work in autism that way. Btw, my son has autism, and I wanted research-based information, not the myths you find online, thus my motivation for formally studying autism. It is a fascinating disorder!

    I would be happy to answer any questions or link you to any information I can.

    Diana
