Learning Behavior Specialist Endorsement

The Learning Behavior Specialist (LBS I) endorsement prepares teachers who already hold an Illinois PEL (Professional Educator License) to obtain LBS I endorsement. By taking four courses that meet Illinois state requirements, teachers can earn the LBS I endorsement that is attached to the grade level of their existing PEL. Any student possessing an Illinois teaching license meets SXU's admission criteria. This endorsement is designed for K-12 teachers. The Special Education Endorsement is designed for licensed teachers seeking to obtain Learning Behavior Specialist (LBS I) endorsement in Illinois.

Please view the program requirements and course descriptions in the SXU Academic Catalog for additional information.
