Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs Endorsement

The Department of Teacher Education offers the Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs Endorsement (formerly the Early Education of the Handicapped Validation (VAL.ECE.EEH). This endorsement can be added to an existing pre-kindergarten certificate, a special education certificate, or a intervention specialist or early childhood license and allows teachers to teach children ages 3-5 who have mild, moderate, to intensive needs. Students enrolled in an Early Childhood License program may complete the coursework for the Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs Endorsement as a focus area for their undergraduate degree.
