Advanced degree programs in Special Education allow students to choose among a focus in special education in the areas of early intervention, preschool special needs, high incidence conditions (e.g. learning disability, mental retardation, emotional disturbance), severe disabilities (e.g. physical, cognitive and social-emotional) and behavior disorders.  All of these graduate programs can be linked to teacher certification requirements in Ohio and Michigan. The location of the university offers students opportunities to work with children/adults who have a wide range of abilities in a variety of school settings and intervention programs.
