MAE 608 - The Exceptional Learner


This unique course is designed to first challenge the students in defining exceptionality, normalcy, and individual differences, and simultaneously present our understanding of these concepts in historical, sociological, cultural, psychological, legal and educational contexts. Students will learn about learning differences, in terms of style and conditions that present unique challenges in the educational arena. Specifically, they will gather information about various educational disability conditions, how they are assessed, addressed, and dealt with in our public schools. They will learn about the laws governing these educational processes, and begin to understand how individual educational plans are developed and implemented. Fieldwork: This course requires 20 hours of structured visits to schools that work with individuals with disabilities. (3 Credits)
