Department of Special Education Mission Statement The Department of Special Education prepares professionals to be competent in educating individuals with special needs from birth to adulthood across a variety of environments. We accomplish this goal in collaboration with faculty members from the Department of Teacher Education, and together we promote equity and excellence in our curricula for all our students. Course description : This practicum was developed to provide some level of support for students beginning the Transitional Internship Option (TIO), who are not scheduled for Directed Practice in the semester they transfer into the TIO. Students will attend seminars, submit journal entries, do a case study, and provide an opportunity for an observation by the instructor. Through study, reflection, discussion, and projects participants will increase their understanding in serving students with mild/moderate disabilities. Participants will also have the opportunity to discuss issues related to the implementation of the special education mandates. The content has been designed with specific emphasis on seeking equity and promoting excellence in educational opportunities. We will focus on the primary needs of the participants. Hopefully, teachers and future teacher candidates will increase their basic knowledge in order to serve more effectively these learners. Knowledge-base: The knowledge-base supporting articles and best practices proposed in this course has been extrapolated from the fields of education, policy, and particularly, research concerning the preparation of teachers and the education of learners with mild/moderate disabilities and behavior challenges.
