GE 6123 - High Incidence Disabilities


This course is designed to develop understanding of the strength and needs of students with high incidence disabilities, with a particular focus on students with specific learning disabilities. Emphasis is placed on identifying and implementing assessment, instruction, and intervention practices that have been proven through sound, empirical research to be effective.  Strategies for assessment and specialized instruction in general and special education settings are included.  In this course, the development of Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) for this population based on assessment data and core curriculum standards are covered, as well as the transition of the population into various levels of post-secondary settings.  This course is in a hybrid format with four face-to-face sessions alternating every other week with three on-line sessions.  In addition, for the duration of the seven-week course, students will meet for an additional three hours a week in a laboratory format where students seeking certification in special education will work with families and students (ages 14 to 18) to create instruction and intervention in the areas covered in the course for students who are diagnosed with specific learning disabilities.
