Children with special needs inspire special teachers to help them learn.
The St. Andrews Special Education degree program is designed to prepare educators to teach children with mild disabilities via the General K-12 Curriculum. Through participation in additional courses the program also offers an option for add-on certification in Gifted Education for any education major or licensure only candidate.
Pre-service teachers in Special Education will develop the knowledge, skill and dispositions necessary to provide developmentally appropriate learning experiences for special needs students in special and general education settings. The pre-service Special Education teachers will show evidence of skills for leading students toward higher cognitive development stages.
