The Early Intervention Studies (formerly known as Deaf and Hard of Hearing Infants, Toddlers and their Families: Collaboration and Leadership) Graduate Programs consist of two hybrid programs (online and on-campus instruction) that provides students and professionals from a wide range of disciplines with current evidence-based knowledge and skills for working with families and their very young children who are deaf or hard of hearing. We offer a Masters of Arts program and a Certificate Program in Early Intervention Studies. The content and teaching of the programs are interdisciplinary and provides an overview of professional and ethical practices, communication and language(s), families, and developmental assessment and programming. Candidates in each program will acquire leadership, advocacy and collaboration skills that promote age and developmentally appropriate outcomes for infants and toddlers. All coursework and experiences reflect principles of diversity including understanding and appreciation of language diversity (ASL and English, as well as other home languages).
