Low Incidence Special Education Endorsement

Low incidence special education is an education program designed for children and youth for whom the general education curriculum is not appropriate. Approximately 15,000 Kansas public school students need a more functional curriculum, and there is a significant shortage of low incidence special education teachers.

The low incidence special education endorsement consists of 9 graduate credit hours and can be completed as preparation for the low incidence special education endorsement Praxis test in Kansas. Students seeking this endorsement must hold a valid Kansas professional teaching license and be endorsed in high incidence special education.


Kansas State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools 30 N. LaSalle St. Suite 2400, Chicago, IL 60602.

The Professional Education Unit at Kansas State University is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE).
