Services for Early Childhood Special Education
What is an Early Childhood Teacher Specialist?
Early childhood teacher specialists work with educators, parents, and/or agencies by consulting about children with special needs (age birth through five years of age).
They collaborate with the Early On Coordinator to help transition students from Early On to preschool, and assist students with transitioning from a preschool setting to Kindergarten.
The early childhood teacher specialist is required to have an endorsement in both early childhood and special education with a full approval from the Michigan Department of Education or a ZS endorsement (early childhood general and special education).
