We are looking to move to Hilton Head Island and researching job availability for Special Education teachers. My area of choice is Early Intervention. Are there Home-Based early intervention teachers in SC? Also have ABA experience. Can anyone give me any insight on how to transfer state licensure?

Special Ed teachers and Early Interventionists are two different things here. SPED credential requires a teacher program and passing of the Praxis test for state certification. They teach in schools. Early Interventionists must have a degree in Education, Social Work, or Psychology and pass the state's training for IDEA Part C credentials. EI's typically work for private companies that have contracts with the state agency (BabyNet) to provide service for ages 0-3. After that, the school system provides services (if they qualify) or private companies continue through private pay or Medicaid. BabyNet employees are called Service Coordinators and do eligibility evaluations. If the child is eligible through BabyNet, all services must be natural environment. School-based services are at a designated school or center. Private only is conducted in the office or the home (ABA).

Default Thank you for your response

I've been teaching as an Early Intervention and ABA teacher for over 14 years in NY. I have a BA degree in Special Education and a Masters in Instructional Technology. I have permanent certificate in Special Education, so I can basically teach in schools or as a Home-based teacher, which I prefer. Do you know the pay rate for Early Intervention teachers? In NY we get paid per 45 min or 60 min or 90 min sessions. Was basically just trying to get an idea if Early Intervention and/or ABA jobs are prevalent near Hilton Head area.
