The Department of Special Education (SPED) prepares educators and other professionals to work with people with exceptionalities and their families. The majority of our programs prepare special education teachers to work with children with disabilities and their families from birth through young adulthood. There are also programs for those interested in working with gifted and talented students.
In addition to tenure-track faculty and full-time instructors, SPED employs more than 50 field-based, part-time instructors.
Faculty areas of expertise include:
- Disability as diversity
- Cultural and linguistic diversity
- Post-secondary transition
- Birth to 5 early childhood special education
- Response to intervention
- Behavior analysis
- Instructional adaptations
