Early Childhood Special Education Students become involved in the community the moment they start their degree.
Students gain experience in the field with professional, ethical, research, and policy issues related to early childhood development, social-emotional early learning, and family support. Through direct hands-on experience, you will learn how to design and implement high quality early learning environments, services, and supports that value the diverse needs of families and children with development delays, disabilities, and special needs.
