I am currently enrolled in an alternative certification program and have yet to find a job. I passed the EC-4 Generalist content exam with flying colors but, due to a family medical emergency, I missed my 4-8 Generalist test date. I am only allowed to take one more content exam before I get a job and was thinking about taking the Special Ed instead on the 4-8. The special ed test can be taken by computer practically anytime versus waiting for the next available "official test date". Also, in my job serch I have noticed a need for this type of teacher. What is the exam like? Will I be able to change to regular ed without to much protest if I want to? Will I be dealing with severely impaired students? Do I need additional qualifications for that? And, absolutely no disrespect intended, will I be dealing with incontinence or other medical conditions? Any feedback would be great.
