Learn to recognize and help children overcome developmental delays with the Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education and Early Childhood Special Education degree. Channel your passion for educating young children while preparing for certification in early childhood education as well as early childhood special education in states where the latter is applicable. As the ability to recognize developmental delays early in life has expanded, so has the demand for special education-prepared teachers. Build your skills in classroom management and pedagogy while also learning strategies for family, community and clinical involvement in meeting the needs of exceptional children.
