Special Education (Intervention Specialist)

This is a multi-age licensure program option begun while completing either early or middle childhood education majors at the undergraduate level and finished at the graduate level during one post-baccalaureate semester.

Our Special Education program will prepare you to be a competent, compassionate, collaborative intervention specialist; one who will confidently connect with all students.

Additional Thoughts from our students


What our students are saying:


"The special education program at Muskingum University has prepared me for the world of teaching. I know instructional techniques that work for students with special needs, I know special education laws, I know how to write IEP's and I have an understanding of parents of children with a disability and how to communicate with them. I am confident that I will be a great teacher!"

Taisha Kaspar, Class of 2010



"I was driven towards special education as a major through experiences I had during my high school years. I spent quite a few hours in the middle school and high school tutoring students with special needs. These experiences made it clear to me what I wanted to do professionally."

Preston Elmore, Class of 2011


"The Muskingum University Sepcial Education Department has done an amazing job of preparing students for their future careers.  Personally, I have been able to learn so much and have also got to see the many items learned applied in a classrom.  The opportunities of partnering with local schools and teachers has been a huge help in the process of becaming a teacher.  I have been blessed with an advisor, and many professors who are willing and always ready to help me with anything I need.
