The early experiences of young children with special needs can have a dramatic impact on their success as learners. The goal of the Teaching - Early Childhood Special Education (MSE) Master’s Degree program at Fordham University  is three fold.

Overview

Teaching - Early Childhood Special Education (MSE) Programe description

  • The first is to provide teachers with knowledge of the development and assessment of young children with Special Needs (birth through grade 2).
  • The second is to provide teachers with expertise in intervention strategies, including impromptu modification, adaptation, differentiation, response to intervention, and guiding positive behaviors.
  • The third is to prepare teachers to advocate for children/families.

An eclectic knowledge base with dynamic qualities play significant roles in preparing special education teachers to meet the needs of all children with disabilities and their families.

Contemporary ideas and current mandates are redefining both teaching and learning. Teachers’ responsibilities are changing. Teaching all children requires expertise in theory, practice and advocacy.
