This area focuses on teaching infants and toddlers who require mild to severe interventions.

If you intend to obtain a teaching license in early childhood special education, you are required to get a  licensure evaluation from Ball State’s Office of Teacher Education Services before starting the program. The evaluation will provide you with a list of courses and exam requirements for an Indiana license in early childhood special education.

  • SPCE 600: Education of Exceptional Children (3 credit hours)
