The program’s philosophy and subsequent courses are based on an inclusive model that prepares teacher candidates for collaboration and co-teaching in the inclusion classroom. Completion of this degree program and passing scores on the New York State Teacher Certification Examinations lead to NYS Students with Disabilities 7-12 Generalist Initial and Professional Certification.
The M.A.T. in Special Education program’s goal is twofold: 1) to produce caring and highly specialized teachers who have the ability to meet the challenges in today’s inclusion classrooms; and 2) to produce teacher candidates who facilitate the growth of their students by empowering students to actively participate in their learning and reach their highest potential.
Particular attention will be given to instructional design for the inclusive and co-teaching classrooms; special education identification and assessment practices; classroom management and behavioral interventions; foundations of research with an emphasis on research methods, statistical analysis and interpretation; and applied behavioral analysis for severe stereotypic behavior.
Teacher candidates will complete 100 hours of pre-Residency classroom field observations, two Residency terms under the supervision of a critic teacher, 45 credit hours of coursework, and a capstone action research project to meet program requirements leading to Initial certification.
