MSE 530 - Methods of Teaching Students with Low Incidence Disabilities (SED 230)

4.00 credits.
This course is designed to prepare students to implement best practices, ensure access, and to serve as advocates in collaboration with a service team for students with low incidence disabilities and their families. These disabilities include the traditional categories of significant and/or multiple disabilities: mental disabilities with significant cognitive needs, low vision and blindness, hearing impairments and deafness, deaf-blindness, autism, physical or health disabilities, and traumatic brain injury. Students learn strategies for collaboration, specific instructional and classroom management procedures, considerations for younger and older students, and are challenged to identify and use innovative tools to support active participation.  Students are also encouraged to wrestle with current trends and issues in special education and the larger field of education. Reading response, and collaborative learning are an integral part of the course experience. *Prerequisite(s): SED 224  and acceptance into the Graduate Education Program is required. Register by Instructor.
