Empower and advocate for young learners.
Learn how to give PreK–8 students with moderate disabilities opportunities that will prepare them for life, with faculty who believe in the competence of every individual and that an equal education is a right.
The program begins with an overview of the special education profession. From there, you'll take courses that cover communication and reading and writing. Design curriculum for learners of varying abilities, and learn about assessment. Build Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Explore elementary subject areas from math to social studies.
At Lesley, we prepare teachers who are lifelong advocates for their students. Here, you’ll study the characteristics and effects of disabling conditions. Explore issues of inclusion, social justice, and equity, and 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.
