EDUC 0540 - Introduction to Students with Exceptional Learning Needs

Credits: 3

Content and experiences will focus on those students who meet the criteria for categories of disabilities that are identified by education law and those with other exceptional learning needs. This study of individuals in the context of school will facilitate an understanding of laws, history, litigation, individualized education programs, Response to Intervention (RIT) and Universal Design Learning (UDL) principles. Race, gender, and economic status are examined as they apply to students with exceptional learning needs. Historical and current approaches to the education and inclusion of students with exceptional learning needs will be examined including topics of identification, placement, referral, evaluation and assistive technology. (15 hours field experience required.)
