The Intervention Specialist program at Ashland University is unique for two reasons:
Teacher candidates are in the field beginning in their freshman year.
Coursework in the Intervention Specialist program is the same for mild-moderate and moderate-intensive licenses. Candidates can choose to apply for a single or dual license in both mild to moderate and moderate to intensive need for intervention.
The mild-moderate license is designed for individuals planning to teach students (grades K-12) who have mild to moderate need for educational intervention to be successful in the general education curriculum. Individuals who are interested in the moderate to intensive license will be prepared to teach students (grades K-12) with moderate to intensive needs for intervention and who may need alternative assessment. Teacher candidates planning on pursuing a dual license will be prepared to teach the full spectrum of students with intervention needs in grades K-12 educational settings.
