  • Intervention Specialist Licensure

    Degree offered: Bachelor of Science in Education  

    Licensures offered: Intervention Specialist Mild to Moderate Educational Needs, Intervention Specialist Moderate to Intensive Educational Needs 

    The Special Education Programs prepare the teacher education candidate for an Ohio Intervention Specialist license in Mild/Moderate Educational Needs (MM) and/or Moderate/Intensive Educational Needs (MI). Both licenses cover the range K-12. Studies include the general education core requirements and a wide range of professional education courses. In addition, students are provided opportunities to participate in extensive field-based experiences in diversified school settings for children with Mild/Moderate and/or Moderate/Intensive Educational Needs prior to student teaching. These programs integrate theory, practice and educational technology, as the candidate is gradually inducted into the special education profession. The purpose of the program is to develop reflective, problem-solving, caring teachers who have the knowledge base, the professional competencies, and the dispositions to be effective special education teachers. The program models guidelines of the Ohio Department of Education, the Council for Exceptional Children, and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.

    Students may elect to earn one or both Intervention Specialist Licenses.
