The ESC's Career Development & Advancement Program (C-DAP) establishes employee licensure for non-degreed teacher assistants and paraprofessionals and provides an opportunity for licensed teachers to add an Intervention Specialist license and for current Intervention Specialists the ability to add endorsements to their license through partner universities. Our agency employs over 200 intervention specialists and teacher assistants/paraprofessionals each school year to support special education programming in grades Pre-K through 12. Our goal is that the program will create pathways, remove barriers, and offer opportunities for these staff to attain degrees and licensure in special education while advancing their professional development and career trajectory.*
