Alumni Holly Fox giving individualized attention to a studentSpecial Education: Mild Intervention

Special education teachers, like all educators, do more than a job. They inspire and provide role models for the next generation. Special educators are driven by a passion for teaching children to develop healthy minds, bodies and social skills and helping students transition to adulthood. Indiana Tech understands the important role that special educators play in a well-rounded elementary, middle and high school experience, which is why our Bachelor of Science in special education: mild intervention stands above the rest.

Share your passion

We know that teaching is a calling for many people. They are driven by a passion for interacting with and shaping the minds of young people. Indiana Tech shares that passion, which is why our Bachelor of Science in special education: mild intervention stands out.

A practical, hands-on approach

We believe that in-the-field practicum experiences in public or private school settings help our students develop important skills. This keeps the curriculum fresh and flexible, and helps students learn to adjust to real-life settings easily. Our students are up-to-date in modern teaching practices, with a curriculum strong in technology, instructional methodology, classroom management, motivational strategies and diversity.

Four values central to our graduates

We stress the hands-on model of learning in the majority of our coursework. Four themes run strong throughout the program and are ingrained in our graduates:

  • Knowledge of content, context, human development and pedagogy
  • Skills and disposition of a reflective practitioner who considers the impact of actions
  • Respect and appreciation for diversity
  • Professionalism in all aspects of his/her career 

These concepts are stressed in every aspect of our program, leading to caring, responsible, passionate elementary and middle-school teachers.
