Information Session for students interested in the MEd in Early Intervention Program

The Early Intervention area of concentration in the Special Education Program focuses on young children with disabilities (ages birth to five) and their families. As a field, early intervention promotes the following benefits in this population:

• Minimizes the potential for developmental delay and reduces the impact of disabling conditions

• Reduces the overall cost of educational services through prevention and attenuation

• Enhances the capabilities of families to meet the needs of their children

• Minimizes the likelihood of institutionalization of children with special needs

• Maximizes the developmental potential of young children to eventually live independently in society

The Early Intervention program prepares practitioners in the assessment and educational programming of young children with disabilities. The program has 2 graduate degree options:

  • MEd Early Intervention (37 credits)
  • MEd Early Intervention with Autism Specialization (46 credits)
