Special Education Sports
A paradigm shift is underway in special education, driven, in part, by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and No Child Left Behind.
The new approach to special education centers on the belief that children of all learning abilities — including those with physical and mental differences — should learn together, have equal access to the general education curriculum, and have the supports they need to lead fulfilling lives.
The COE Special Education Program is at the forefront of this movement.
Our forward thinking educators and researchers champion these new, more effective democratic school communities.
We have the resources to conduct innovative research that helps shape special education policy and the ability to offer a wide range of special education courses.
With the breadth and depth of our graduate program, our students gain the exceptional skills required to work effectively in the new model of special education.
