“If the child cannot learn in the way we teach…we must teach in a way the child can learn,” –Ivar Lovaas
QU’s Special Education curriculum is a dual licesure program where candidates earn both special education (P-12) and Elementary Education (1-6) teaching credentials. It is designed to help students gain special understanding of learner characteristics, diagnosis, evaluation, program planning, and instruction for students with disabilities. From Instructional Methods to Practicum, students will be able to learn methods of teaching and then put them to use in the classrooms.
