Special Education Dual Certification

Hanover College Educator Preparation Program
Offering Dual Certification
in Exceptional Needs: Mild Interventions (P-12)

Exceptional Needs: Mild Interventions is a P-12 certification that must be completed in combination with an Elementary Education or Secondary Education teacher certification.  It requires passing of the Indiana licensure exam for Mild Interventions in addition to the content area licensure exams and pedagogy licensure exams.  Five additional courses are required: EDU  252, 253, 254, 255 and 256.  These courses may be taken at any time and in any order. Admission to the Educator Preparation Program is not required.  Undergraduate students will complete a student teaching assignment (EDU 458) integrating both of their certification areas.

Licensed teachers in Indiana may also add to their existing licenses by completing the coursework listed above and passing the Indiana licensure exam for Mild Interventions.

Note: The Elementary Education requirement of a minor is waived for Elementary Education majors completing Dual Certification in Mild Interventions.
