Become an effective and empowering teacher of students with disabilities.
In this license-only graduate program, learn how to give PreK–8 students with moderate disabilities opportunities that prepare them for life.
Take courses that cover communication and reading and writing. Design curriculum for learners of varying abilities. Build Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Explore elementary subject areas from math to social studies. Do all this alongside faculty who believe in the competence of every individual and that an equal education is a right.
At Lesley, we prepare teachers who are lifelong advocates for their students. You take special education seriously, and so do we. We believe in the competence of every individual, and equal access to quality education.
Here, you’ll learn to express those beliefs in your teaching. Study the characteristics and effects of disabling conditions. Explore issues in speech, language, and communication. Discover how to develop a variety of strategies for adapting curriculum. And because evaluating students is a responsibility of all special educators, you’ll also focus on assessment issues.
