Special Education Add-On Endorsement

This convenient, affordable program is designed for working educators who want to add to their professional credentials. It is the perfect online option for those who hold a Kansas teaching license in education at the elementary or secondary level, or for those currently working toward licensure in one of these areas. Teachers holding licensure and a high-incidence special education endorsement may be licensed to teach children with intellectual disabilities, behavior disorders, and learning disabilities. Most courses include a field experience that helps you connect learning to the classroom. Advance applications are required for the clinical experience and internship. Placements must correspond with school schedules and hours.
