SPEC 525 Introduction to Exceptionalities

3 Credits

Students are introduced to the research and practices concerning a range of exceptionalities in children. Through a study of policies, legislation, programs, and methods that impact special education programs, students develop an understanding of the goals of inclusion with regard to universal design, multiculturalism, and collaboration.  Students learn about the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and related processes, including the development of the IEP and the implementation timeline.  This increased knowledge enables them to distinguish among the common characteristics that are associated with a variety of exceptionalities, including specific learning disabilities, social-emotional disorders physical disabilities, and how these characteristics impact the educational environment. This course has a required field component.
