Autism Collaborative Centers of Excellence Executive Hub Opens

Autism Collaborative Centers of Excellence Executive Hub Opens

The University officially opened the Autism Collaborative Centers of Excellence Executive Hub on campus as part of an initiative led by the AllOne Foundation intended to significantly enhance the service delivery system for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and their families living in 13 counties in Northeastern and North Central Pennsylvania.

“On behalf of The University of Scranton, I want to express our gratitude to AllOne Foundation for listening to our neighbors dealing with Autism — hearing their concerns and their frustrations — and for envisioning a sustainable, collaborative response to their needs,” said Scott R. Pilarz,S.J., University president, at the opening ceremony of the facility.

This fall, the University began offering an 18-credit Applied Behavior Analysis Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study for professionals working in psychology, education, child care, speech and language disorders, and counseling and human services.

At the opening, University faculty discussed aspects of the Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessment and Placement Program (VB-MAPP) in the center’s state-of-the-art assessment labs that will be taught as part of this post-graduate program, which will be housed in the University’s Department of Counseling and Human Services. Each lab is also equipped with recording devices to aid in education and training of the students and assessment purposes.
