Advance Your Career and Change Lives Along the Way

Educators with gifted certifications often get the pleasure of engaging with students who approach the world a little differently. This certification also gives you more career options and will qualify you for higher pay. Gifted Intervention Specialists often engage students as supporting faculty, gather and analyze key data and see their roles expand. Gifted Intervention Specialists are also often invited to speak at conferences and seminars, giving you a unique platform as you support gifted students everywhere.

About the Program

This program prepares teachers to break out of the traditional educational mold and work with students in new and creative ways across a broad range of contexts. While many gifted intervention specialist programs trend toward the theoretical, we maintain a strong practical balance, allowing you to bring your specific needs to the program and encouraging cohort input into your unique challenges.
