Anyone who has completed the Project Optimal Foundations in Autism Spectrum Disorders (FASD), will not be required to repeat this component of the Autism Added Authorization program. This Autism Added Authorization program has been developed so that competencies build on each other as the learner moves through the content. Also, those people who have completed the Certificate in Autism Studies (Educational version) through Antioch University Santa Barbara, within the previous 24 months will also be given credit toward the Added Authorization Program.
These people should contact Project Optimal for further information. Although there are a range of programs that may cover similar content, Project Optimal has neither the individual program knowledge, nor an understanding of the variation in quality of programs provided by other organizations or institutions. Because of this, we are unable to provide recognition of prior study other than the FASD.
