This is an introductory course in special education. 

We will explore the needs of children with disabilities and techniques for meeting these needs in the regular classroom.  The course will emphasize both the social and instructional aspects of the concepts of inclusion, differentiation and serving students in the “least restrictive environment”.  Participants will be introduced to concepts central to understanding the role of regular classroom teachers in meeting the academic, social, and emotional needs of students with disabilities.

Objectives:  By the end of the course students will be able to:  identify and describe current issues and trends in education related to individuals with disabilities and their families; describe the Special education laws and procedures impacting individuals with disabilities; develop a working definition for each area of exceptionality in relation to achievement of educational goals; and develop strategies and resources for modifying, adapting and/or differentiating curriculum and instruction.
