Program Description

Through a combination of virtual classroom and field-based learning, GGC’s online Special Education program gives future educators an opportunity to acquire the necessary assessment, instructional, and consultation skills for working effectively with culturally and linguistically diverse children and/or adolescents who have special educational needs. The goal of the program is the development of informed, professional, and dedicated educators to address the full spectrum of educational needs for this population. In addition, students will learn about accessible instructional materials, assistive technology, curriculum access and alignment, classroom designs for success, and family/community engagement. Graduates will be prepared to work with students with special needs in preschool settings through grade 12 and will earn two endorsements: Reading and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). During the final year, students will participate in a year-long student teaching experience and complete a leadership seminar.
