GE 6178 - The Special Needs Student


This course will reflect the education standards for special education promulgated by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. Students will learn how to best service students with cognitive, behavioral, and/or physical disabilities. The history and legal aspects of Special Education will be a focus of this course. This course is designed to further develop the attitudes, knowledge, and conceptual and technical skills required by teachers to help them identify the educational goals of students and to select or design and implement relevant, meaningful, and beneficial instructional strategies for effective learning by students with special needs. With a continued increase in the special needs population, educators are legally responsible for understanding and carrying out the duties for all special needs students. This course will inform and lend itself to strengthen the skills of teachers to assure they are meeting the elements prescribed for each individual student. This course prepares teachers to become critical thinking professionals who will be able to demonstrate knowledge and awareness of special populations of children with exceptional needs by modeling best teaching practices.
