These populations include, but not are not limited to: children growing up in poverty in urban contexts, children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities, autism, and other neurodevelopmental disorders, children with learning disabilities, children and adults who are deaf and hard of hearing, children and adults with communication impairments, and children and adults developing language and literacy in multilingual environments.

Certificate Requirements

The certificate will consist of 18 credit hours. There will be four required courses for a total of 12 credit hours and two electives for a total of 6 credit hours.

Scholastic Discipline Policy

After completing six credit hours and at the end of each term thereafter, certificate students are evaluated for continuation in the program. Evaluation will include meeting academic milestones in their doctoral programs. Unless exceptional circumstances are present, students with a GPA below 3.0 in graduate-level classes will be scholastically terminated from the certificate program.
