Special Education

The Department of Special Education is a vibrant department of dedicated faculty members with a wealth of educational experiences. Our goal is to prepare exemplary teachers, innovative school leaders and educational researchers. Almost every classroom today has a number of students who have a disability, whether it be physical, intellectual, emotional or any combination of the three. The special education department offers programs designed to develop and refine competencies in professional educators to meet the demands of teaching students with special needs in a variety of school environments, including public, private, urban and suburban.
