    An emphasis in general curriculum is for those interested in working with students with mild disabilities who are primarily following the general curriculum. The special education students who are most frequently served in these settings include those with behavior disorders, learning disabilities, mild intellectual disabilities, other health impaired, and some students with autism or Asperger's.

    Adapted Curriculum/Autism

    This emphasis is for students interested in working with those who have moderate to severe autism and developmental disabilities. Training in this emphasis prepares you to work in an adapted curriculum, which means it does not follow the typical general curriculum used in most classrooms.

    Birth Through Kindergarten

    The birth through kindergarten/preschool emphasis prepares professionals to work with children birth through age 5 both with and without disabilities. Training in this program prepares you for inclusive early learning, preschool, pre-k and kindergarten programs, along with early intervention (0-3) and preschool intervention (3-5) programs.
