OPTT: Mild/Moderate

Students are studying with their teacher on a field trip.

This licensure qualifies individuals to work with K-12 students with mild to moderate disabilities. These students may have mild cognitive impairments, learning disabilities, emotional/behavioral disorders, or other disabilities requiring special education. The emphasis in the mild/moderate program is identifying strategies and developing special education programs to address the educational demands for the student to meet the state core curriculum.
