The ECE Inclusion Associate Credential is appropriate for individuals interested in becoming assistant teachers in the field of special education who work in early childcare programs. The program is 11 months (44 weeks) for a total of 750 hours. Children receiving early intervention and/or a personal care assistant (PCA) services deserve a trained and experience adult that can read, adhere, and carry out the IFSP or IEP as prescribed. This program also prepares adults to meet the requirements for the Child Development Associate (CDA) and Paraprofessional Credential, which is lacking in childcare programs that service children birth to five.
