Cal State East Bay will launch a new Early Childhood Special Education Added Authorization (ECSEAA) Certificate Program this fall. The program enables special education credential holders to extend the authorization of their credential to include services to young children, birth to five, and their families. Currently, credential holders can only serve kindergarten through age 22.
Designed for working adults, the ECSEAA program can be completed in two quarters and is offered in a hybrid format. The program’s dynamic curriculum includes courses on: Young Children with Special Needs, Family Systems and Cultural Competence, Assessing Young Children with Special Needs, and Curriculum and Instruction for Young Children with Special Needs.
All courses are taught by practicing Early Childhood Special Education and Early Intervention specialists in the Bay Area.
Upon completion of the program, candidates may apply to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing for the Added Authorization: Early Childhood Special Education.
Applications for fall are being accepted now through August 15 and space is limited. More information on the program and admissions process can be found on the program website.
