The curriculum for this graduate-level special education license has been intentionally developed by experts in the field of significant disabilities, autism, and communication disorders. The scope of the curriculum is focused on understanding and meeting the intense needs of the learner with exceptionalities.

The online coursework provides opportunities to delve into evidence-based practices, theoretical applications, legal implications, as well as current trends all while collaborating with a cohort of learners. A variety of instructional tasks and assessments allow candidates the opportunity to demonstrate proficiency in their knowledge and skills.

The clinical experiences are designed with a scaffolded approach that varies in intensity and developmental levels. Experiences range from observations to supervised teaching with a focus on the gradual development of competency in practice.
