Course Description:

The most current estimate from the CDC is that 1 in 88 children are diagnosed on the autism spectrum; in recent years the increase in incidence has risen 10% to 17% annually. In this course, students will gain knowledge in understanding current research on etiology theories and neurobiological basis of autism, understand core features in impairment in communication, social skills, and emotional regulation, understand occupational impacts for the child and the family, discuss the role of occupational therapy in assessment and interventions, and gain knowledge in evidence-based interventions.
---------------
This is an online course that will not meet on campus. Most course activities and interactions will occur asynchronously and online through Tufts Canvas, the university's learning management system. You can take this course from anywhere, as long as you have a reliable internet connection (broadband highly recommended). Online courses are held to the same academic standards as campus-based courses and students can expect high levels of interaction with faculty and classmates.
 
Online courses at Tufts are not self-paced, however they typically offer much more flexibility for students. Typically, course content is organized in a weekly structure, so students will be expected to login and participate regularly. However students can generally set their own schedule within each week as long as assignments and activities are completed on time.
 
All online courses will have regular instructor office hours where students have an opportunity to speak to their teacher, via telephone or web conferencing. Some courses may require a live session(s), where students are expected to login to a web conferencing site at a certain date and time.
 
Some online courses require proctored exams. Students in the area can come to the Medford campus to take these exams at a specific date and time. Students taking the course truly from a distance will need to identify an acceptable proctor and go through Summer Session's proctor verification process.
