The Child Development Program offers a planned sequence of courses leading to the Early Intervention Certificate. This 36-credit hour certificate is for persons interested in working as paraprofessionals with infants and pre-kindergarten children with disabling conditions and their families. These courses may be applied toward the A.S. degree in Early Childhood Education.
Students who plan to transfer to the university system should consult the Child Development Program faculty or program advisor.
Note: In addition to the required courses, participants will be required to have a current certificate in first aid and infant, child and adult CPR. This certification must be earned no earlier than one term prior to graduation.
