Learning Disabilities + Regular Education

Learning disabilities in the regular classroom

No two students learn in exactly the same way. Even those youngsters not identified with a learning disability also have preferred ways of learning, whether that’s visual, verbal or auditory. With a comprehensive major in learning disabilities for grades 1-12 and regular education grades 1-8, Blugolds are prepared to meet all students where they are, in any classroom.

For more detailed information and course requirements, see the catalog.

I joined the special education program because I wanted to be able to be the teacher to help not only the students with different needs, but all of the students in my classroom.
