Alternative Certification in Special Education
The Alternative Certification in Special Education is designed to prepare individuals who do not currently hold certification and have not completed a teacher preparation program for a rewarding career as an educator working with children in an LBD (Learning and Behavior Disorders) classroom. The Alternative Certification Program in Special Education standards outline the knowledge and skills needed by a beginning teacher in the area of special education. For additional information please contact, Kari Wright, at email@example.com
This is a teacher preparation and certification program at the graduate level and will lead to certification. This is not a degree-seeking program, it is a certification program. Students who complete the alternative certification in special education program through Northern Kentucky University are eligible to apply a portion of the graduate coursework towards obtaining a Master in Arts of Education.
