Degree Plan

Gain the problem-solving skills you need to help young learners succeed, including coordination with fellow teachers and families to develop individualized plans for children with mild to intensive needs.

This is the major you should choose if you want to teach young children age three through eight (pre-K-3) who have mild, moderate, or intensive disabilities. You will be taking specially designed intervention courses and field experiences that will prepare you to work with young children with disabilities. This degree will allow you to teach children in specialized classrooms, resource rooms, as well as team teach as the intervention specialist in inclusive classrooms.

The Ashland University program is unique since students completing the degree in Early Childhood Intervention also complete the early childhood licensure program during the same four-year period. The early childhood license will permit you to teach in the typical general education classrooms educating children in Kindergarten through third grade.
