The graduates will help meet the personnel needs in the field of early intervention/ early childhood special education that exist through the nation, and particularly in Alabama.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) has developed an interprofessional preparation model that not only increases the quality of masters-level students, but enhances the diversity and quality of early intervention, early childhood, and related services personnel who are prepared to use methods shown to be effective through evidence-based practices.
Project TransTeam Provides:
A comprehensive early childhood special education (ECSE) program leading to licensure in ECSE; and
A related services component in physical therapy (PT) and occupational therapy (OT).
