EDU 603 - Advanced Special Needs Strategies

(3) This graduate level course is designed to help education students understand the integration of exceptional children and adolescents into the regular educational environment in accord with federal and state laws pertaining to exceptional children. The needs of exceptional children are no longer the responsibility of special education, but a shared responsibility of regular education teachers, a team of specialists, parents and family. In order for regular teachers to meet their responsibility, they need to understand and apply knowledge of child development, identification and assessment procedures of exceptional children, adapting and designing educational interventions, and communication strategies with exceptional students, school team members, and parents. The ultimate goal is to provide the very best learning environment for the exceptional student to achieve his/her maximum learning potential.
