You can earn a Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a multiage-licensure in the area of mild to moderate disabilities in Wright State's intervention apecialist program. You can also choose two content concentration areas from language arts, mathematics, social studies, and/or science. The degree program is designed for you to complete general education and content courses as a freshman and sophomore and begin the intervention specialist cohort program as a junior.
The cohort portion of the program consists of three semesters of integrated coursework and field experiences and one semester of student teaching. Courses include multi-cultural and global perspectives in the general education requirements. Additionally, specific courses ensure that you develop theoretical and practical knowledge in humanities, mathematics, social sciences, and biological and physical sciences. You will take courses that prepare you to work with individuals who are diagnosed with high-incidence disabilities (such as specific learning disabilities, ADHD, Autism, mild intellectual and physical disabilities, and emotional/behavioral disorders).
After you complete the program and pass Ohio-required licensure exams, you are eligible for an Ohio Resident Educator Intervention Specialist license in Mild/Moderate Needs (K-12).
