- Inclusion Education Degree
As the number of special needs students continues to rise, educators must work to keep up with the growing demands and individualized education plans these students will need. Educators looking to understand the most recent strategies for reaching challenged learners should consider the Inclusion Education focus of the Masters Degree in Education program at the University of New England. Educators in this fast-growing field can gain insight into assessment and instruction for students at all levels, by choosing this specialized concentration.
These courses are designed for educators, both teachers and administrators, who wish to have more background in inclusion practices and concerns. Because the courses are all taken online, educators are able to implement the strategies they learn in order to start better assessing their students before the program is completed.
This unique concentration explores methods and strategies for teaching all students in inclusion settings with a special course on the range and use of assistive technologies. Furthermore, formal and informal procedures for assessing special needs students will be reviewed with a focus always on utilizing the results to inform and plan instruction. Finally, the ability to apply special education law to your setting and a practicum to integrate all your inclusive education learning concludes this concentration.
