Moderate Disabilities

Through courses, field-based experiences, and practica, the Moderate Disabilities program affords general educators, special educators, and other specialists in related fields an opportunity to acquire the necessary assessment, instructional, and consultation skills for working effectively with culturally and linguistically diverse children and/or adolescents who are at risk and who have special educational needs. Course work and experiences focus on the design and implementation of, and advocacy for, inclusionary learning settings for children with and without disabilities, designed in collaboration with their teachers and parents. The urban, multicultural school provides the central context within which graduate students are guided to reflect on their teaching practices and to view themselves as active contributors to school improvement.
