Early Intervention Certificate,

16 credits

The Certificate program in Early Intervention is primarily intended for professionals working in the field of family-centered supports and services (early intervention) who need more focused coursework related to infants, toddlers, and young children with disabilities. For example, a licensed physical therapist providing services for a toddler with disabilities might want to pursue more focused coursework on this age group. The Certificate does not lead to credentialing as an Early Interventionist, but does address many of the competencies needed for this credential.
