Lamar University's M.Ed. in Special Education online prepares you to design curricula and learning environments that nurture the abilities of special education students while helping them manage a range of learning difficulties and behavioral issues.
With a core curriculum based in research, assessment and content specific to the exceptional learner, you will understand how the needs and capabilities of these types of students differ from those developing normally and how best to guide them in their learning process. You will also learn how to assess and evaluate educational status and progress as well as strategies for curriculum modification and behavior management.
*Price includes distance learning fee. On December 27, 2016, new requirements regarding educator preparation programs were approved and published in the Texas Administrative Code (TAC). New language regarding field observations were included in the new TAC. Specifically, Title 19 part 7 Chapter 228 RULE 228.35 requires educator preparation programs to now conduct at least one of the field observations on-campus face-to-face for principal, superintendent, and school counselor certification. Beginning spring 2017, a fee of $500.00 will be included in the total tuition for those students enrolled in programs impacted by the new TAC changes.
