Make access to learning possible.
At Lesley, we prepare teachers who are lifelong advocates for their students. We believe in the competence of every individual, and equal access to quality education. Here, you’ll learn to translate those beliefs to your own teaching.
In this license-only program, you'll get thorough training in issues and topics surrounding special education. You'll gain skills in positive behavior supports. Understand how to help students transition from school to adult life. Get practical communication skills through courses in literacy and technology.
You’ll explore issues in speech, language, and communication. Discover how to develop a variety of strategies for adapting curriculum, and apply those strategies during your student teaching experience. And because evaluating students is a responsibility of all special educators, you’ll also focus on assessment issues.
At the end of your program, you’ll be prepared for a rewarding career in the 21st century elementary classroom. In fact, employers in Massachusetts prefer to hire Lesley graduates, saying that they are best prepared to enter the classroom on day one.
