The Department of Special Education develops quality teachers who value lifelong learning. Programs are designed to train educational generalists in inclusive non-categorical approaches for children with heterogeneous special needs. The instructional curricula provides credential and graduate candidates with a broad background in the physiological, environmental and social aspects of exceptionality. Candidates learn effective research based teaching strategies, interdisciplinary approaches, collaboration and communication skills, plus transition and positive behavior support, as they establish a conceptual base of understanding of persons with disabilities.
