Initial License in Moderate Disabilities (Special Needs)
Students pursing the elementary education (grades 1-6) license have the opportunity to add an initial license in moderate disabilities (preK-8). After completing three specified courses in special needs: ED203 Introduction to Children with Special Needs, PSY230 Clinical Approaches to Children with Disabilities, and ED 403 Internship & Seminar in Moderate Disabilities (Pre-K-8), students who graduate from the education program and earn their Elementary Education license can apply to the state to add the moderate disabilities license. Students who have earned the Early Childhood license (grades prek-2) can also add the license by completing the three courses above, and passing the General Curriculum Massachusetts Test for Educator Licensure (MTEL).
