Including Exceptional Students (CTGE5154)

This course will introduce concepts, skills, and assistive technologies that enable teachers to include students with exceptionalities in regular classes. Emphasis will be on students with mild disabilities; in addition, we will learn about students with the full range of disabilities and special health care needs, along with the kinds of provisions often made for them in an Individualized Education Program (IEP). The course focuses on three interconnected strands: the effect of disabilities on learning and behavior, skills to identify student strengths and areas of need in order to individualize instruction, and collaboration with others to prepare students to their highest levels of academic achievement and independence within inclusion settings. Students are encouraged to create ideal inclusion models. CRN: 10489
