MMIS Program Outcomes

Notre Dame College’s Mild Moderate Intervention Specialist (MMIS) License, a field-based program, prepares Special Education teachers with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required to successfully meet the educational needs of students with mild to moderate disabilities in K-12 inclusion, resource, and intervention classrooms. The program is designed to meet the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) initial accreditation standards, Council for the Accreditation of Education Preparation (CAEP) standards, and requirements for licensure as a Mild Moderate Intervention Specialist in the State of Ohio. Candidates complete course work in professional and special education. In order to be licensed to teach in Ohio, candidates are required to pass the Ohio Assessments for Educators. The Ohio Assessments for Educators assesses the content-area and professional (pedagogical) knowledge of candidates who are seeking initial Ohio educator licensure or adding a new licensure area. The assessments are aligned with Ohio’s Learning Standards. Candidates must also take the Foundations of Reading test as part of the OAE battery. See the following website for a complete list of tests, qualifying scores, and registration information:

Throughout the preparation program, the candidates relate their practice to the Ohio Standards for the Teaching Profession. The Ohio standards cluster in three categories: teaching and learning, conditions for teaching and learning, and professional work. A faculty team works together to create a cohesive learning experience for the candidates that reflects the real world work of special education intervention specialists and builds on research-based best practice. The teacher candidates focus on the CEC Standards and the Ohio Office of Exceptional Children and Ohio Department of Education (ODE) recommendations for licensure.
