PK12-SPEC2

Special Education Part 2

Special Education Part 2 delves deeper into the learnings from Part 1. This course has three main themes: (1) the legal implications and applications of the Education Act as it pertains to Special Education, (2) assessment, and (3) enhanced program design for students with exceptionalities.

Assessment includes both formal and informal tools, as well as information gathered from observation, assessment and school documents to design effective programs for all students with exceptionalities. Psychological assessments are also studied. This course will interest teachers who want a greater understanding of the field of special education and wish to fine tune their programming skills for their students with special education needs.
