Why Choose Bilingual Special Education?
This program is designed for certified special education teachers seeking New York State Bilingual Education Certification, which is necessary to connect high-risk students with certified, compassionate teachers. Plus, classrooms are changing. Educators need to be sensitive to the needs and potential of each English Language Learner (ELL) with learning disabilities, emotionally disturbed/behavioral disorders, and autism, as well as physical disabilities, intellectual disabilities, and multiple disabilities.
In this 15-credit program, you will explore the cultural, linguistic, psychological and sociological diversities that ELL students bring with them to the classroom. You will gain the skills, attitudes and understandings necessary to teach non-native English speakers so they can succeed in the classroom and beyond.
Developed specifically for working professionals, all courses are offered in the afternoon and evenings, usually between 4:30 p.m. and 9 p.m.
