Special Education License: Intense Intervention Program

Meeting Needs . . . One Child at a Time

If you are in the field of education, you know that special education teachers are in great demand across the nation, particularly in teaching students with significant disabilities.

The intense intervention graduate special education online program allows undergraduate students actively pursuing the mild intervention licensure, as well as professional educators in the field who already have their mild intervention license, to add to their pedagogical repertoire the knowledge and skills in teaching students P-12 who require intense interventions. Candidates who complete this 15-hour program are eligible for exceptional needs: intense intervention license through the Indiana Department of Education.

The curriculum for this graduate-level special education license has been intentionally developed by experts in the field of significant disabilities, autism, and communication disorders. The scope of the curriculum is focused on understanding and meeting the intense needs of the learner with exceptionalities.

The online coursework provides opportunities to delve into evidence-based practices, theoretical applications, legal implications, as well as current trends all while collaborating with a cohort of learners. A variety of instructional tasks and assessments allow candidates the opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in their knowledge and skills.

The clinical experiences are designed with a scaffolded approach that varies in intensity and developmental levels. Experiences range from observations to supervised teaching with a focus on the gradual development of competency in practice. Field and clinical experiences provide teacher candidates opportunities to view the entire scope of teaching students with significant disabilities and to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to be effective practitioners.  Each course in the Intense Intervention Licensure Program requires a field or clinical component which allows for authentic connections, applications, and practice during the course of study.
