Quality classroom experiences
As early as the freshman year and throughout the program, students engage in field experiences. Students are encouraged to become active members in the Student Council for Exceptional Children.
Program coursework and field experiences are aligned with special educator preparation standards of the Council for Exceptional Children and integrate foundation knowledge and skills, theories, methods and practices to work and advocate on behalf of learners with disabilities.
Career - what can you do with an intervention specialist degree?
Internship opportunities working with students with disabilities include positions such as a coach, camp counselor, child care provider, or volunteer at a school or community agency.
With the shortage of qualified special education teachers, you will be marketable in public schools as a classroom teacher, tutor, resource room teacher and consulting teacher. You’ll also have opportunities outside the classroom in such places as mental health facilities, social service agencies, hospitals and juvenile detention centers.
This curriculum provides clinical and field-based hours where students receive first-hand experience working with children and adolescents with special needs.
Mild-moderate intervention specialist work with students with mild to moderate educational needs, generally identified as having learning disabilities, developmental disabilities or being at-risk for school failure. Moderate-intensive intervention specialist-work with students with moderate to intensive educational needs, generally identified as having severe behavior handicaps or multiple handicaps.
