Early Childhood Special Education is an interdisciplinary specialization that focuses on services to infants through preschool age children who have disabilities and their families. ECSE specialists work in a variety of programs and may consult with Early Childhood Education agencies and classroom teachers to facilitate inclusion and child success.
The ECSE authorization allows credentialed special education teachers to add-on an authorization to teach children Birth through age 5 who have disabilities in programs administered by school districts, county offices of education or Regional Center contracted programs. In addition, ECSE providers who also have the added authorization may teach children with disabilities in public school settings.
