As children with special needs are identified at earlier ages, the demand for teachers with strong backgrounds in special education is rapidly increasing.
The more training the teachers have in interventions and accommodations, the more prepared they will be to teach in an inclusive classroom, which is becoming more the norm than the exception.
This current certificate specifically prepares the general education teacher, special education teacher, counsellor, program specialist, lead teachers, coordinators and site administrators to address the complexities of educating students with learning, social, and emotional needs, including those identified with disabilities. Built by experts in the field, you will learn to better serve students with exceptions or special considerations who are mainstreamed into the general education classroom, as well as systems and supports for the wider school community.
