Graduate Certificate in Low Incidence Disabilities

The online Graduate Certificate in Low Incidence Disabilities program prepares educators to meet the educational needs of the students with a significant intellectual disability or with multiple disabilities, including cognitive, sensory and physical impairments.

The 24-27 credit hour graduate certificate in low incidence disabilities at the University of Kansas provides graduate preparation focused on meeting the educational needs of students with significant intellectual disability and students with multiple disabilities, including students on the autism spectrum with concurrent cognitive, sensory, and/or physical impairments.  Program completers who pass the state-required licensure exam are eligible to add a low-incidence special education endorsement to their existing Kansas license.

If students wish to obtain a license or certification in a state or a US territory other than Kansas after completion of their program, it is highly recommended that they seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency BEFORE beginning the academic program to ensure they can obtain a license of certification in their home state or territory. The website provides resources for licensure and certification boards outside of Kansas.
