Post-Secondary Programs for Professionals

Over the past decade in British Columbia and internationally, recognition has grown that professionals must have advanced training if they are to support children and adults with ASD reach their potential. BC’s post-Secondary institutions have responded to this challenge and have made many more programs available. Increasingly post-Secondary programs are available online both from Canadian providers and from the US.

It is important to ensure that the course you are registering for is from an accredited university.

In recognition of the inquiries ACT receives from the community regarding obtaining a post-secondary education related to autism, we have developed a listing of autism-related programs offered by post-secondary institutions within British Columbia.
