Course description

Special Educational Needs

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of students who need your help? As we continue to improve in our ability to identify students with learning disabilities and diverse needs, the importance of individuals who are trained to help these students increases.

Course modules are very informative I am currently taking a Special Needs course (I work as a Sub in my local school district for SEN students). I learned so much more than I would from just working with the students. I got a better understanding so I know how to approach them and teach them better.
