Future Leaders in Providing Your Low-Incidence Disability Services

The Low-Incidence Transcripted Certificate is an interdisciplinary program that prepares graduate students to address and support the needs of individuals with significant support needs and their families through evidence based practices. This 3-course certificate is offered to educators in the field of special education and other related disciplines, such as: counseling, psychology, general education, and education administration. 

The certificate program consists of three courses:

  • SPED 5319 (Introduction to Low-Incidence Disabilities): Fall semester
  • SPED 5320 (Application of Learning Principles): Spring semester
  • SPED 5321 (Supporting Access for Students with Low-Incidence Disabilities): Summer 1 semester


The FLIP Your LIDS program was originally developed with support from the US Department of Education, Office of Special Education Programs, a grant-funded project designed to provide specialized training with a focus on low-incidence disabilities to students seeking master's degrees.
