The Education Specialist Credential authorizes the holder to teach students with mild/moderate or moderate/severe support needs (K-age 22) in public or private school programs, clinics, special schools, resource classrooms, educational programs, residential facilities, hospitals, and other agencies serving persons with special needs. This credential program prepares the teacher candidates through required coursework and clinical practice.
The Preliminary Level I Education Specialist Credential has two areas of specialization: Mild to Moderate Support Needs and Extensive Support Needs. These areas of professional emphasis distinguish the student population with which the candidate seeks to pursue a special education career.
