This 24-credit graduate certification program will allow the teacher candidate to obtain a Mild Intervention teaching license. Teacher candidates are eligible to complete the coursework if they hold a current teaching license.
All 24 credits in this program may be applicable toward a master’s degree in Special Education at IPFW.
Mild Intervention covers learning disabilities, mild and moderate disabilities, and emotional disabilities.
Teacher candidates will receive a Mild Intervention license in the same developmental level(s) as their current license. Teacher candidates may complete a practicum in another developmental level to receive a license at that desired level.
Teacher candidates wishing to add Mild Intervention to their license must complete all courses above and pass the following Praxis II exam:
