Program Description

Working with children who have special needs can present unique challenges and opportunities to the child care industry and early childhood education field in Wisconsin.

This new credential is designed to help you build the skills, knowledge, resources and attitudes to successfully work with ALL children in your centers and programs. Courses can be taken in any order and concurrently as long as the Capstone Course (307-112 Family and Team-Centered Practices) is taken last.
