The learning disabilities program prepares teachers for the realities of today's classrooms. In the comprehensive program, candidates learn evidence-based practices: for developing students with disabilities language, math, and social skills; for including these students in the general education curriculum; and for transitioning them from school to life. Moreover, candidates apply this knowledge by working directly with students with disabilities in both clinical and school settings.
The M.Ed. degree in Special Education emphasis in Learning Disabilities requires 33 credit hours.
