The Graduate Certificate in High Incidence Disabilities Endorsement (Kansas) prepares you to add a high-incidence disabilities endorsement to your existing Kansas license. Students are required to complete two fieldwork practica that let you apply your coursework to real-world situations, supervised by an expert faculty member. State-by-state requirements vary and it is the students’ responsibility to verify with their employer and/or home state department of education as to whether this program will meet their needs/requirements.
The Department of Special Education online programs are comprised of rigorous eight week courses. A majority of the work is completed asynchronously, meaning that it does not happen “live.” Courses are eight weeks long (2 courses per a typical semester) and typically contain multiple milestones throughout the course. Students are expected to follow the course modules in order, submit assignments on time, and participate in online discussions with classmates. Potential students must ensure that they are prepared to be successful. Online coursework will require approximately 15- 20 hours of undivided attention per week (including readings, online discussions, individual projects, etc.). Consistent access to high speed internet services (basic broadband- 1Mbps) and a personal computer that features Office 2016 or equivalent will be necessary. A tablet or mobile device (i.e., smartphone) will not be sufficient as a primary computer or primary means of accessing the Internet for the online coursework.
