Mild/Moderate Intervention Specialist

Tony Menendez
Associate Professor Tony Menendez Ph.D

The program in Mild/Moderate Educational Needs is designed to prepare teacher candidates to develop, implement, and evaluate individualized programs for children and adolescents ages 5 through 21 who have special academic and social adjustment needs. These individuals are typically identified as having a specific learning disability, mild/moderate mental retardation, or mild/moderate behavioral disorders. Students who complete this program are eligible for provisional licensure as a mild/moderate intervention specialist and will demonstrate diagnostic skills and competencies in the assessment of academic and social needs as they particularly apply to the development and delivery of instruction in both regular and special-education classrooms.

The Mild/Moderate and Moderate/Intensive Intervention Specialist programs are available at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Early Childhood Intervention Specialist is only available as a graduate program. Refer to the links at the right for admission and program requirements specific to the level of interest to you
