The Certificate of Achievement in Early Childhood Special Education is designed to deepen the understanding of development of all children, learn how to meet individual needs, and support children and their families in early childhood education programs. This certificate meets the requirements for the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing Child Development Associate Teacher Permit, and can be used as a specialization for the Master Teacher Permit.
We anticipate that 5 students will complete this certificate after 1 year, and that numbers will double in subsequent years after the certificate becomes better known.
