NECC believes in providing staff with world-class professional development opportunities. Through our graduate school partnerships with Simmons University and Western New England University, NECC staff can earn a Master of Science in Education Degree with Licensure as a Teacher of Students with Severe Disabilities or a Master of Science in Applied Behavior Analysis while working for NECC. Classes are hosted at the John and Diane Kim Autism Institute making the program even more convenient for our already-busy teachers.
Bringing these opportunities directly to our teachers not only makes them better educators and caregivers to current students, but also provides them with the credentials to begin programs for children with autism outside of NECC, further expanding the reach of NECC. Our network of alumni have worked with children with autism around the world.
