EDU 525 Introduction to Exceptionalities

3 Credits

In this course, students are introduced to the current research and practice concerning the range of exceptionalities in children. Through a study of policies, legislation, programs, and methods that impact special education programs, students develop an in-depth understanding of the goals of inclusion with regard to universal design, multiculturalism, and collaboration. They also learn to identify and assess the pertinence of the six principles associated with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). This increased knowledge enables them to distinguish among the common characteristics that are associated with a variety of exceptionalities and how these characteristics impact the educational environment.
