Teaching students with special needs in elementary school requires dedication and knowledge. At the M.S. in Special Education at the Long Island University (LIU) you will study classroom management and the diagnosis and correction of learning disabilities.
You will learn how to facilitate inclusion, a trend toward keeping special education children in regular classes while also providing additional assistance in that setting. Elective courses include the use of technology in special education, understanding the neurologically impaired child, and the assessment and education of children with autism. Supervised student-teaching opportunities will give you real-world experience with this special population.
