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.
Findlay offers an intervention specialist licensure program that is nationally accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). If you already hold a bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited institution, then you may qualify for our post-baccalaureate licensure program.
In addition to the required coursework, approval of licensure requires:
Completion of Ohio Department of Education approved licensure curriculum (individual curricula dependent upon approved transferrable coursework)
Three-levels assessments (linked to coursework)
The following state-required tests: Foundations of Reading (#090), 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.
The University of Findlay licensure programs meet Ohio licensure requirements, candidates interested in being licensed in another state need to work with that state’s department of education to determine eligibility for the other state.
Diversify yourself even more by adding five graduate courses to earn your Master of Arts in Education!
