About

Teachers in the Special Education program at Middle Tennessee State University fulfill unique needs in the lives and development of our younger citizens; for children whose needs go beyond what is usually available in the classroom, the teacher is even more crucial. 

Overview

Students can have a wide range of learning, mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. Teachers make sure that lessons and teaching strategies are designed to meet individual needs.
