Graduates are recommended for a master’s level teaching certificate (T-5), which earns a higher teacher salary in Georgia and indicates that the graduate is prepared to provide evidence-based practices in Special Education as well as to support other faculty in providing appropriate interventions for students with high incidence disabilities.
