Special Needs Endorsement (PreK)


This endorsement is designed for the current teacher who wishes to add skills and knowledge regarding the young child with special needs.

Students seeking an endorsement in Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs must hold a current teaching license in Pre-Kindergarten, K-12 Intervention Specialist license, or a Early Childhood PK-3 license. Students who do not have a current (expired) teaching credential must complete the renewal requirements for a license prior to the granting of the endorsement in Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs.

After successful completion of the program and passing the state board of education examination required for this endorsement, students may add the endorsement in Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs to their current credential. Please consult with a Teacher Licensure advisor in the college’s Office of Student Services for current information.
