Top Courses in Special Education

Special education courses train instructors to teach academic subjects as well as life skills in their classrooms to promote success in their students' school and home lives. Class topics vary to fit the needs of educators who may be instructing blind, deaf, autistic, developmentally delayed or gifted students.

You may wonder, what is a course in special education? Each course is designed to give instructors appropriate tools to become highly effective teachers in their classrooms. For example, enrollees may learn how to plan lessons to meet different needs among learners. They may also learn about universal design, specific accommodations and/or modifications to promote learning. A course may provide specific information about disabilities such as speech impairment, deafness, autism, emotional disturbances, blindness and brain injuries. Because special education programs also serve children who are gifted, coursework incorporates the how-tos of working with gifted and talented populations.

By taking a course in special education, students grasp knowledge in pedagogy, behavior management, and the laws pertaining to disabled individuals. These courses will also assist instructors in developing strategies for assessment and testing.

The cost to take a course in special education varies depending on the institution, how long the class lasts, and whether it is delivered in an online or on-campus format. It would be wise to contact different universities, including international schools, to check into tuition rates.

The need for teachers with expertise in special education continues to grow because of legislated student achievement requirements and the retirement of existing teachers. Those who take courses in this field of study can be on their way to new careers as teachers, speech pathologists, art therapists, supervisors or directors. With additional courses, educators who are already in the classroom can advance to become curriculum specialists, principals, administrators and/or superintendents.

Institutions around the globe have a wide variety of exciting classes in this field. If you feel called to work in the rewarding arena of special education, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
