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 CORE exam (025) in addition to the content area CORE exams and Pedagogy CORE exams.  Five additional courses are required: EDU 352, 353, 354, 355 and 356. Admission into the education program is required for EDU courses 353 and 356.  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 below and passing the Indiana CORE 025 exam.
