Intervention specialist licensure

Intervention specialists are in demand!



An intervention specialist license in Ohio allows you to teach children in grades K-12 with mild to moderate disabilities.


The University of Findlay offers an intervention specialist licensure program that is nationally accredited through the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).


If you already hold a bachelors degree from a nationally accredited institution then you may qualify for our post baccalaureate licensure program.


Our post baccalaureate intervention specialist license consists of:

  • Completion of Ohio Department of Education approved licensure curriculum (individual curricula dependent upon approved transferrable coursework)
  • 3 levels assessments (linked to coursework)
  • The following state required tests:  Assessment of Professional Knowledge (PK-12) (#004), Mild to Moderate Needs (K-12) Special Education (#043)


Students must maintain a 3.00 GPA, pass all three level assessments and all state required tests to earn a Letter of Program Completion.


Diversify yourself even more by adding 5 graduate courses to earn your Master of Arts in Education!
