Early Childhood Special Education, Advanced Certificate
The Early Childhood Special Education Advanced Certificate program is for teachers who already possess initial, provisional, permanent, or professional certification in Early Childhood (birth-grade 2), or Childhood (Grades 1-6) or Elementary Education (pre-k-6). The program leads to New York state certification for teaching Students with Disabilities (birth-grade 2).
The program does not lead to a degree.
In addition to the general admission and completion requirements for master’s-level graduate study, candidates must provide evidence of their initial/provisional or permanent/professional certification as an early childhood or elementary teacher.
