Minimum Qualification Requirements:

To qualify, you must meet all of the following requirements:

Basic Education: A bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university with a major in human behavior or in a social science. The education must have included a minimum of twelve semester credit hours in Psychology and/or Education, which included coursework in the learning process and child growth and development.

Specialized Experience: Six months of professional teaching experience assisting in and teaching a class for students with developmental disabilities which included managing small groups of students assisting in and having some responsibility for planning and preparation of instructional materials and providing individual instruction to students.


Satisfactory completion of practice teaching at an accredited college or university and satisfactory completion of twelve additional semester credit hours in Special Education with specialization in students with developmental disabilities.


Three years of professional experience teaching the intellectually disabled.

Such experience must have involved the development and preparation of lesson plans and teaching units and experience in the overall management of a classroom.


One year of experience as a professional teacher, not necessarily in teaching students with developmental disabilities. However, this teaching experience must have demonstrated conclusively that the applicant had experience and responsibility for planning and preparing for the independent operation of a classroom, which involved independently developing and preparing lesson and unit plans, and carrying on overall classroom management.

The Special Education Teacher III in the State service has independent responsibility for an assigned classroom. Methods and activities are developed by the teacher for effective presentation of subject matter and the development of students, with full accountability for classroom management.

Such experience may have been gained concurrently or separately from the General or Specialized Experience Requirements listed above.
