Program Description:

The program uses a cross-categorical model which reflects the needs of teachers serving diverse learning needs in P-12 educational settings. The program prepares teachers to meet the educational needs of students within a single inclusive education classroom and/or inclusive general education classroom setting. Course work emphasizes the similarities and highlights the differences among students with diverse learning needs and includes a life-span perspective addressing issues from preschool through transition to post-secondary or employment. The course sequence includes courses that link theory and field experience and culminates with a supervised internship. The certification program prepares professional teacher leaders with advanced knowledge of characteristics, procedures, methods and techniques of assessment for students with mild disabilities.
