​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

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 region​ally accredited institution, then you may qualify for our post-baccalaureate licensure program.​

​​​Licensure Requirements:

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 progra​ms 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!
