Education

Special Education

Everyone is entitled to education, even those born with disabilities. Those with disabilities, though, cannot learn in the same way or pace as others and as such, have special needs when it comes to education, which is what the Special Education program prepares you to accommodate. In the Special Education program, you will learn about the different cognitive and speech disabilities, particularly how to recognize and assess these, and then you will be taught not only effective teaching strategies on how to teach various subjects to students with these disabilities but you will be trained on how to understand them better, how to deal with their complex behavior, especially if they become violent and how to work with their families to support their development. Aside from teaching students with disabilities, you will also be trained on how to handle children that are exceptionally gifted.
