Course Description

Capstone Course in Early Intervention will be the culmination of the Certificate in Early Intervention Certificate Program. Over the course of the program, program participants will produce a scholarly product related to a particular topic. Throughout the year, progam participants will meet regularly with faculty advisors to track progress and discuss their project. Students will be held to strict deadlines and their work will be both peer and advisor-reviewed. The work will be judged for its professional value and students will be encouraged and assisted in finding appropriate homes for their work in a recognized publication or media outlet. Each Capstone project will result in a poster or platform presentation at the annual conference held by the GU Center for Child and Human Development in June.
