The College of Education Department of Special Education (SPED) is offering a new Reading Interventionist program beginning Summer 2022. Funding is available for current special education teachers or district resource teachers who will give a 3-year commitment to teach in a special education setting in a Hawaii public or charter school that focuses on remediation of students with disabilities or at-risk for identification for SPED due to reading deficits.
The Reading Interventionist program is an 18-credit program that is completed in one year (Summer-Fall-Spring). Accessible from any island through online delivery, the program is made up of 4 content courses (12 credits) and 3 clinical practicums (6 credits).
This program will be admitting and funding 20 candidates each over the next three years (Summer 2022, Summer 2023, Summer 2024). Connect with the SPED Recruitment Specialist at https://coe.hawaii.edu/sped/programs/reading-interventionist/request-more-info/ to find out if this program is a good fit for you and ask any additional questions you may have. Priority deadline for Summer 2022 is May 1, 2022.
