Description

Description

The project will prepare highly qualified teachers of students with high incidence disabilities. Specifically, this project will: (a) increase the number of highly qualified special education teachers to teach children with high-incidence disabilities; (b) prepare special education teachers who are confident and capable of taking a leadership role in meeting the needs of those children and adolescents who because of their learning and behavior challenges do not respond satisfactorily in general education classrooms; and (c) strengthen and expand the university's high-incidence special education preparation programming. The program focuses on eight core areas: (a) evidence-based instructional practices and programs; (b) competence in racial, cultural, linguistic, and economic diversity; (c) collaborating with parents and other professionals; (d) skills for solving difficult instructional problems; (e) skills for teaching students with high functioning autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and/or other behavioral challenges; (f) expert assessments needed for progress monitoring and response to intervention models; (g) skills for training, supervising, and managing paraprofessionals; (h) integrated training and practice opportunities through multiple, high-quality, mentored field-based placements. Participants will also be recruited for application to the program from diverse cultural and linguistic groups and/or be individuals with disabilities. Trainees will complete internships and student teaching experiences in multicultural and high poverty areas. And they will, if supported, agree to teach in special education two years for every year of program support.
