The Multiple Disabilities program is a 5-course sequence that prepares educators to meet the needs of students perceived as having moderate, severe, and multiple disabilities, including preparing those educators to utilize evidence-based practices in assessment, curriculum development, and instruction.
The Multiple Disabilities program is typically offered through a cohort model. Cohort members can be students enrolled in the Master of Science program in the Department of Special Education, combining core courses and electives, or non-degree seeking students taking the courses as a stand-alone non-degree program.
The next cohort will begin in Summer 2022, and the application will open in Fall 2021.
Your application should include:
A statement that describes (a) your experience working with individuals perceived as having with moderate, severe or multiple disabilities; (b) your strengths and areas for improvement related to teaching individuals with moderate, severe, or multiple disabilities; and (c) three specific learning goals for the program;
A letter of recommendation that addresses characteristics that will make you successful in a graduate certificate program and documents that you have a minimum of one year of working experience in PreK-21 school settings;
A current resume;
A copy of your current licensure; and
Any official transcript from each higher education institution you have attended.
