A local campus is hosting a new training option to help autistic students.
Students at the Webb City campus of Crowder College can work toward a certificate as a behavior technician. The one-year process is designed for students who are working toward a career in the classroom.
“Demand from the public in regards to more programs being offered in school and health settings related to individuals with autism. And so this was allowing us to kind of meet a need,” says Mark Fitch, Crowder Webb City Director.
Students seeking the certification will take four 8 week classes then wrap up their training with a summer class focusing on clinical study.
