Please note: The SED experience requirement excludes “incidental experience” with an SED child or population. This means that if the work of the provider may have been with a child with SED, but the defined work role was not intended to address this directly, the experience does not qualify towards the requirement. Examples of “incidental experience” would include: I) Owner of a day care for children who throughout his/her years of experience have had children classified as severely emotionally disturbed. II) A bus driver with children on his/her route who have been classified as severely emotionally disturbed. III) The facilitator of a youth group or bible school class with some children in the group having been classified as severely emotionally disturbed. IV) A family therapist with some of the children/youth having been classified as severely emotionally disturbed. V) A classroom teacher with some children in the class having been classified as having a severe emotional disturbance. VI) Staff whose work with children has been with the developmentally disabled population only. VII) An individual whose work has been with children from ages 0-5.
