Lake Erie College offers fully online post-baccalaureate courses that lead to a Mild-Moderate Intervention Specialist License.
The coursework prepares you to assess and plan interventions, collaborate with families and Professionals, create differentiated lessons, and implement positive behavioral interventions and supports. Field experiences are embedded in each course to allow for practical hands-on experiences. These can be carried out within your existing classroom or in other sites you arrange.
Each of the six courses runs for 6-7 weeks across three semesters allowing students who begin in the summer to complete the program in one year; however, students may enter the program during any semester. Applicants must have evidence of having taken and passed a pedagogy exam as well as 12 credit hours of reading (including a course in phonics) as required by the state of Ohio for this license. Candidates must also pass the
OAE special education content exam before Lake Erie College can sign-off on the additional license after completing the coursework.
Coursework can be completed in three semesters over a one-year period. This includes two six-week courses in the summer, two seven-week courses in the fall, and two seven-week courses in the spring.
The convenience of 24/7 access to coursework anywhere there is Internet connectivity.
Ability to maintain your current position and income while you earn an additional teaching license.
