The PIPs project will prepare highly qualified professionals to work with young children with complex needs and their families. PIPs scholars will receive interdisciplinary training through a variety of opportunities and experiences both on and off campus.
Graduates will be eligible for certification in speech language pathology or early childhood special education and will be prepared for positions serving children with disabilities eligible for Part C or Part B preschool services through the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
The inaugural group of PIPs scholars will begin their program in June 2018.
