This course is not designed for experienced Special Educators. It is an introduction to education programming for people with special needs. Special education law, history, and current practices are emphasized with a focused study on students who learn in a variety of ways. We will discover how students with disabilities require a unique response to their education and examine educational systems and services that respond to learners’ with very special needs. Teachers and educational professionals can make a real difference in the academic, social, and emotional outcomes of students with disabilities. In this class, we will investigate topics such as: student-centered learning, co-teaching, Individual Education Plans, Functional Behavior Analysis, and Positive Behavior Support Plans. Furthermore, we will discuss specific disabilities (i.e. Intellectual Disability, Autism, Social and Emotional Disorders, Other Health Impairment) and how to respond to the needs of those specific students in our classrooms.
