Intervention Specialist Early Childhood (40510)

The Intervention Specialist Early Childhood graduate level license program at the University of Rio Grande is available only to those students who already hold a teaching license or certificate in Elementary Education, Early Childhood, Middle Childhood, Adolescent to Young Adult, Multi-Age, or Secondary Education.

This program prepares teachers to work in inclusive settings with student’s age three to seven, who are serviced in a non-categorical setting, and who have been identified with delays in two or more of the developmental areas. There are prerequisites to the program which insure that, regardless of the current license or certification, the graduate student will have a basic knowledge of all developmental levels. Students who are seeking licensure for Intervention Specialist Early Childhood must take Internship and pass Praxis II. Some of the core courses are offered during the academic year as Internet courses. Other courses are offered during the summer.
