You will also learn how to create an environment that maximizes students’ abilities and helps them achieve their fullest potential.
Inclusive education is the practice of educating children with special needs in a classroom with their peers, rather than isolating them. This course will teach you how to create a more inclusive environment in your classroom by understanding and interpreting students’ Individualized Education Programs (IEP), creating collaborative relationships with families of students with special needs, and learning how to leverage Assistive Technology to make inclusive classrooms more accessible for all participants.
The Inclusive Education Certificate is designed for educators, administrators, parents, and direct support professionals who serve children with disabilities. The certificate consists of four courses designed to provide in-depth information about the skills required of effective educators in inclusive classrooms. These courses provide an overview of the benefits and challenges of inclusive education; an examination of strategies to address the needs of learners with disabilities; a look at instructional strategies that have been proven effective for students with a variety of learning needs; and an introduction to behavior management strategies.
Students will learn how to work collaboratively with families, other professionals, and community members in order to promote the success of all learners. The philosophy behind this program is that all individuals can benefit from training that promotes the understanding and acceptance of differences between people.
This means that every teacher has at least one student in their class who is deaf or hard of hearing. Many teachers are not trained in American Sign Language (ASL) and do not know how to incorporate deaf culture and communication into their lessons. It can be challenging to figure out how to make sure each student is receiving an equally valuable educational experience.
