Special Education for FCS

Request Information


This minor is available to students seeking a Bachelor of Science in Family and Consumer Sciences with a Child Development emphasis. This minor by itself will not result in any kind of special education endorsement through the Kansas State Department of Education.

Students who complete the coursework for this minor will be better prepared to work with young children with disabilities in Head Start, child care, and community preschool settings. This reflects a growing trend in which young children with disabilities are more fully included in all types of community settings.
