The Intervention Specialist program leads to the Bachelor of Science in Education degree with a multiage-licensure in the area of Mild to Moderate disabilities. Teacher candidates also choose two content concentration areas from language arts, mathematics, social studies, and/or science. The degree program is designed so that candidates complete general education and content courses as freshmen and sophomores and begin the Intervention Specialist cohort program as juniors.
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 candidates develop theoretical and practical knowledge in humanities, mathematics, social sciences, and biological and physical sciences. Furthermore, candidates take courses that prepare them 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).
Once candidates complete the program and pass Ohio-required licensure exams, candidates are eligible for an Ohio Resident Educator Intervention Specialist license in Mild/Moderate Needs (K-12).
