Early Childhood Special Education

Description

The Graduate Certificate in Early Childhood Special Education is designed for individuals who currently hold a valid Idaho Standard Exceptional Child Certification in conjunction with the Generalist K-12 Endorsement. Completion of this certificate and required Praxis II examinations leads to an institutional recommendation from Boise State to add an Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE; Pre-K – 3) endorsement. The ECSE endorsement is non-categorical and allows one to teach in any Pre-K special education setting. This certificate program can be pursued individually or may be completed concurrently with the M.Ed. in Early and Special Education.
