Special Education

Special Education is a cross disciplined endorsement that can be earned for any teaching level from Kindergarten through High School (K-12). Special education teachers work with students who have a wide range of learning, mental, emotional, and physical disabilities. As a special education teacher, you will collaborate with other educators adapting Individual Education Plans for the needs of the student. In addition, there are many specialized areas within special education, such as inclusive education, and transition specialist, you may explore.

To be a Special Education teacher, you will major in Elementary Education while at Co-Lin. Then, once you transfer to a university, you will work on a special education endorsement. If you are interested in being part of a field where you have the opportunity to make a difference, work with children, and want to engage in a service-oriented profession, we welcome you to Special Education.
