Taylor adds new program to help teachers get special education license

Taylor University is now offering a program which prepares Indiana teachers to achieve special education licensure in Mild Intervention.

Taylor’s Mild Intervention online licensure program is one of three programs partnering with the Indiana Special Education Assisted Licensure (I-SEAL). Through I-SEAL, teachers with an Indiana teaching license can have their Taylor University tuition and textbooks fully-funded.

The program is comprised of six graduate-level courses (18 credit hours) that will allow licensed teachers in Indiana to add Exceptional Children: Mild Intervention (P-12) certification to their Indiana teaching licenses, pending a passing score on the state licensing exam. Taylor officials say the program is designed in a flexible format – the courses are online and most field experiences can be completed within candidates’ classrooms.  

Candidates are able to start the program at any time and are not tied to traditional dates of semesters at Taylor.

Additionally, those teachers will achieve the necessary qualifications to meet the special education licensure mandate, which will take effect at the end of the 2021-2022 academic year.
