This graduate certificate program provides knowledge and skills development for professionals across disability fields and prepares students to provide assistive technology services to children and adults with disabilities. Students may take this program as a stand-alone program or in conjunction with a graduate degree program. This program addresses the need for comprehensive training efforts in the field of assistive technology with the option for certification. Content is based on nationally recognized competency standards of professional organizations including the American Speech, Language, and Hearing Association (ASHA), the Rehabilitation, Engineering, and Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA), and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC).
