Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization
What is the Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization?
The Adapted Physical Education Authorization is an authorization that you can add on to a Multiple Subject, Single Subject, or Education Specialist credential. It permits candidates to teach physical education to students with disabilities authorized by your credential.
Offered by the: College of Education and Integrative Studies, Education Department and College of Science, Kinesiology and Health Promotion Department
Courses are designed to ensure that candidates have opportunities to develop a broad education and philosophical background on which to base their APE program decisions. The authorization may be added to an existing credential or earned concurrently with a credential.
The Adapted Physical Education Added Authorization is not a standalone credential, it must be added onto an existing Multiple Subject, Single Subject, or Education Specialist credential. Classes for the added authorization can be taken concurrently with credential classes.
