Overview

Learning & Behavior Specialist I (LBS I) program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign prepares highly qualified, innovative special education teachers.  At the end of this 4-year program graduates exit with a Bachelor of Science and a LBSI initial teaching license.  This license allows graduates to teach children ages 3 to 21 with any disability (e.g., learning disabilities, social or emotional disabilities, autism, intellectual disability, physical disabilities, multiple disabilities) in a range of educational settings. Prior to proceeding to student teaching in an Illinois Education Preparation Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, prospective candidates must take and pass an Illinois approved test of basic skills. Approved tests consist of the Illinois Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP), ACT or SAT with approved scores. Previously passed Illinois Test of Basic Skills (096, 300 or 400) may be used to meet this requirement.
