In Special Education Part 1, candidates will gain a general understanding of how to work successfully with students who have various learning needs. This course provides teachers with early intervention strategies to identify at-risk students as well as precise steps to follow to involve the in-school team and ensure that students’ needs are met through an IEP and possibly an IPRC. Candidates will explore the various learning exceptionalities in Ontario and the placement options available in their schools. Through reflection, collaboration, discussion, and research, candidates will develop a wide array of pedagogical approaches that have proven successful when working with identified students. Practical work will include developing useful plans and lessons that can be used readily in the classroom. After completing this course, any teacher should feel well equipped to better understand the needs of students with varied learning profiles and feel confident in their ability to adequately plan for them and report on their progress.
