The Interdisciplinary Language and Literacy Intervention graduate certificate provides advanced coursework focused on evidence-based knowledge, skills, and resources for individuals who work with students who have high-intensity needs. This collaborative and inter-professional graduate certificate address competencies for an intervention specialist from the Council for Exceptional Students (CEC) and from the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association (ASHA). This certificate is designed to meet the needs of educators and speech-language pathologists who use school-based and classroom instructional data to meet the instructional and intervention needs of all students, including at-risk and struggling students, beyond the typical, initial classroom instruction within a multi-tiered system of supports.

This certificate will provide an advanced, multi-disciplinary theoretical approach and applied knowledge base to experienced educators and speech-language pathologists.

Coursework focuses on knowledge, skills and competencies for professionals working with students within an intervention framework. The Interdisciplinary Language and Literacy Intervention certificate is a multi-disciplinary approach and includes competencies from exceptional student education, communication disorders, reading education, and English as a Second Language (ESOL) education. The graduate courses provide an opportunity for students to complete the Interdisciplinary Language and Literacy Intervention graduate certificate beyond the undergraduate degree. Should a student wish to earn a master's degree, education specialist degree, or doctoral degree, the courses in the certificate could be applied to one of several degree programs in the College of Community Innovation and Education or in the Communication Sciences and Disorders Program (housed in the College of Health Professions and Sciences) with the permission of their advisor.
