Return to School of Education Return to: School of Education

The Early Intervention program is an academic Master’s program that requires a minimum of 37 credit hours.  The program prepares individuals to work with young children with disabilities (ages birth to 5 years) and their families. A hands-on, carefully supervised approach is used to assist students in developing competence in assessing young children with a variety of disabilities and planning, implementing, and evaluating appropriate educational programs for them. Students are taught to work in partnership with families and to collaborate with professionals from other disciplines. Consideration is given to a wide range of service delivery models including home, center, school, and hospital-based programs. Special emphasis is placed on preparing students to address the needs of young children with disabilities in natural, community settings that are designed for the inclusion of all children through direct and consultative service delivery.
