CED Accreditation

CED conducts a nationally recognized process for the accreditation of post-secondary programs which train teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students. The CED Accreditation program is built upon the core competencies in special education set forth by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and also has standards specifically for teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students. Graduates of CED Accredited programs are eligible for CED individual Certification which represents the highest standard for teachers of deaf and hard of hearing students.
