K-12 Mild to Moderate Intervention Specialist Licensure
< Back to Intervention Program home page
This licensure area enables you to provide intervention specialist services to students with any kind of mild to moderate disability in grades K-12. With this license, you will work with students who primarily receive their education through the regular classroom with accommodations. You will work in partnership with the classroom teacher or work with students in a small group setting. The student population might include students with learning disabilities, cognitive disabilities, and communication problems. The learners may have mild/moderate emotional disabilities, hearing losses, visual problems or autism spectrum disorders.
Completion of the program will meet requirements for highly qualified status as an Intervention Specialist in grades K-6. You will have sufficient coursework to be considered highly qualified in reading/language arts if you pass an additional Praxis II test in that area. Depending on your other teaching areas and prior coursework, you might be highly qualified in additional content areas.
