    The School of Family Studies and Human Services is focused on the study of individuals and families from a multidisciplinary perspective. Programs emphasize developmental processes throughout the life cycle, interpersonal relationships, family financial planning, intervention for speech, language, and hearing problems, and educational programming for children and families.

    Undergraduate programs include communication sciences and disorders, early childhood education, family and consumer economics, family life and community services, and life span human development, a dual degree program in family studies and human services and social work, and minors in family financial planning and communication sciences and disorders. In addition, students often combine degree programs in early childhood education and elementary education.

    The school places great importance on laboratory and field experiences, along with classroom experiences. On-campus field experiences for undergraduate students are available in the Early Childhood Laboratory, Family Center, Galichia Center on Aging, the Hoeflin Stone House Child Care Center, and the Speech and Hearing Center.

    For students pursuing early childhood education, the Early Childhood Laboratory and the Hoeflin Stone House Child Care Center provide on-campus observation and teaching. Both facilities are licensed by the state of Kansas and accredited by the National Academy of Early Childhood Programs.

    Students in the family life and community services program complete a field experience in a public or private agency that serves individuals and/or families. Agency staff and school faculty guide students in the planning, direction, and evaluation of these supervised experiences. On-campus opportunities for gaining experience are available through the Family Center, the Galichia Center on Aging, and various organizations and offices that address student needs. Students in communication sciences and disorders obtain practical experience in the Speech and Hearing Center.

    Communication sciences and disorders
    Bachelor of science in family studies and human services

    The goal of the program in communication sciences and disorders is to educate professionals who are competent to help children and adults with communicative problems of speech, hearing, and language. The undergraduate program provides the foundation for the M.S. program in communication sciences and disorders, which is accredited by the Council on Academic Accreditation and meets the current requirements in speech-language pathology for the Certificate of Clinical Competence of the American Speech- Language and Hearing Association and for certification by the State of Kansas Department of Education. Determination of the student's program of study and the completion of all requirements for certification are the responsibility of the student and the advisor.

    Students participate in observations of a variety of disorders and age groups in the Kansas State University Speech and Hearing Center. Students may, on invitation of the faculty, participate in supervised direct clinical experience in the Speech and Hearing Center.

    Early childhood education
    Bachelor of science in family studies and human services

    This program is for students who wish to work in prekindergarten education programs in administrative or teaching positions, including work with parents and community resources as well as with young children.

    The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education has approved K-State's early childhood education program. Students completing the early childhood education program in family studies and human services are eligible for certification by the Kansas State Department of Education in Early Childhood Education. Early childhood special education certification is available with advanced study. To complete the ECE program, students must have full admission into the teacher education program.

    Admission to teacher education
    Application forms for admission to teacher education are available in the Center for Student and Professional Services, 13 Bluemont Hall. The application should be filed two years prior to graduation. (See the College of Education section of this catalog for details.)

    Students transferring 50 or more hours from another institution should apply at the time of initial enrollment.

    Requirements for admission to early childhood teacher education program may be found in the College of Education section.

    Laboratory courses
    Before participating in laboratory courses involving contact with children, students must undergo a physical examination, including a tuberculosis test, at their own expense. Students must not have any physical or mental conditions that would interfere with the health, safety, or welfare of children.

    Students will be screened by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment for criminal and child abuse histories (through the Kansas Bureau of Investigation and Social and Rehabilitative Services). Students with questionable histories, as determined by the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, will be dropped from the early childhood education program.

    Directed experiences (student teaching)
    Application for student teaching must be made no later than the semester in which the student is enrolled in FSHS 546 Early Childhood Program Lab 2. Application forms are available from the director of Child Care Programs, 307 Justin Hall.

    Enrollment in directed experiences is by permission only. Directed experiences may not be taken until the student has obtained full admission into teacher education and has completed FSHS 420, 540, 541, 545 and 546.

    Certification
    To be eligible for certification in early childhood education, students must maintain grade point averages required for full admission into teacher education, complete the early childhood education option, including a grade of C or better in directed experiences, and receive recommendation from the School of Family Studies and Human Services for submission to Kansas State University's certifying officer.
