The Cross-Categorical Special Education specialization prepares candidates to utilize a variety of theoretical and research based practices to enable students with disabilities to reach their full potential. Moreover, candidates gain experience in the varied settings and roles of the special educator, including expanding consulting and collaborative roles in the inclusive classroom. Financial aid, tuition discounts, and referral scholarships may apply – ask your enrollment advisor if you qualify.
The program provides candidates an opportunity to complete the necessary coursework for Wisconsin state education licensure as a Special Education Teacher in Cross-Categorical Special Education (WI #801), along with concentration in the area of specific learning disability (WI #811-LD). The program is offered as dual certification in alignment with regular education teacher licensure for MC/EA or EA/A. Candidates who already possess a regular educator license may pursue this program as an additional license; those without the regular teacher license must complete the dual licensure requirements.
