Description

Description

This project will deliver a comprehensive post-Bachelor teacher licensure program in low-incidence disabilities to two cohorts of 15 teacher candidates located in a minimum of four rural local education agencies. The overall aim is to increase the number of highly qualified teachers in rural areas able to work with students with significant cognitive impairments, which can include sensory impairments, autism, and other developmental disabilities. Activities of this project include: (a) recruiting and preparing 30 full-time teacher candidates in 4 cooperating rural school districts (two high-need) during the project period (15 candidates in two consecutive cohorts) with focuses on individuals who have Bachelor degrees, live in the communities served, and are from underrepresented populations; (b) delivering the teacher licensure program in low-incidence disabilities to teacher candidates via synchronous interactive video conferencing, web-based support resources, and onsite supervision and support; and (c) conducting a comprehensive evaluation of the effectiveness of teacher candidates to meet the needs of students with low-incidence disabilities through ongoing structured field experiences.
