About

Early intervention is key for many children with disabilities, and so the early childhood special education teacher has the potential to make a lifelong impact. The Special Education Early Childhood program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee prepares you for that.

Overview

Special education teachers who specialize in early childhood are also in demand as more and more children with disabilities are diagnosed earlier — in fact, the preschool, kindergarten and elementary school levels are the fastest-growing areas of special education, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Curriculum

The Special Education Early Childhood program of the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee leads to a Bachelor of Science in Exceptional Education. Teacher candidates are admitted to the Early Childhood major upon declaring the major or transferring from another institution. Upon completion, you will be eligible to apply for a Cross-Categorical Special Education Teaching License from the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction for ages birth to eight (Grades 0-3).
