NHTI’s Early Care and Education for Young Children with Disabilities degree program prepares you to work in the growing profession of early intervention and early childhood special education. You’ll learn how to improve learning outcomes and promote optimal development of young children who have or are at risk for developmental delays or disabilities.
This program provides learning opportunities that emphasize best practices in supporting children’s access to and participation in inclusive settings and natural learning environments. You’ll be involved in immediate, hands-on training in a variety of settings in preschool special education and early intervention and work with highly trained early childhood teachers and professionals, practice the skills you learn in class, and complete assignments directly related to your studies.
“I first chose NHTI’s early childhood program for children with disabilities because it specifically worked with my desired age group and focus of children with exceptionalities. I quickly fell in love with my classes, the individual support I received from my teachers, and the opportunity to not only observe but eventually work at the lab school on campus. NHTI allowed me to have a full rounded experience through my studies in a classroom and in the field. I later attended a four-year university and felt more than prepared to complete my bachelor’s degree. I recommend NHTI to anyone that I talk to looking to pursue their degree in early childhood education.”
