M/M Education Specialist Credential
A unique, 9-month program designed for those who already possess a multiple or single subject credential to add the Preliminary Education Specialist Instruction Credential: Mild-to-Moderate Disabilities to their existing teaching qualifications.
Special Education Credential candidates learn collaboration skills for inclusive environments. Candidates experience:
- Two quarters (six months) of field based experience in a K-12 special education setting
- Knowledge and skills necessary to work with second language learners’ English Language Development
Candidates in the Education Specialist Mild/Moderate Program who are teachers with intern credentials may use their own classrooms to satisfy most of the fieldwork requirements. They are supervised by district appointed personnel in addition to Antioch University Santa Barbara Field Supervisors.
The Education Specialist Instruction Credential: Mild/Moderate Disabilities authorizes the holder to conduct assessments, provide instruction, and special education related services to individuals in grades K-12 and up to the age of 22, with specific learning disabilities, mild/moderate mental retardation, other health impairment, emotional disturbance, and autism spectrum disorders within the disability area.
