Minor in Early Childhood Intervention

Develop the Potential of Young Children

The 15-hour minor in Early Intervention in the College of Education provides undergraduates with necessary coursework to be eligible for employment in the field of Early Intervention and is offered as a collaboration between Special Education and Early Childhood programs.  Early childhood intervention professionals work collaboratively with families and other service providers on how to support the development of young children with special needs within their everyday experiences. Focus of the course work emphasizes foundational knowledge on special education law, child development, collaborating with families, conducting developmental screenings and assessments, progress monitoring, service delivery and intervention pedagogy. This minor may be of special interest to individuals majoring in early childhood, psychology and social work.

The Benefits of a Minor in Early Childhood Intervention
