Mission

To prepare teachers to work with students with mild, moderate, and/or severe disabilities. Candidates who successfully complete this program fulfill the requirements of the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) and are eligible for initial teacher licensure or the addition of a special education endorsement in Oregon.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Effectively teach students who have a wide range of cognitive, physical, emotional and learning disabilities.
  2. Understand current, credible research findings on disability, instruction, assessment and behavior management.
  3. Provide enriched learning opportunities for students with disabilities in self-contained classrooms, resource rooms or general education classrooms.

The special educator program prepares teacher candidates to work with students with mild, moderate, and/or severe disabilities. The Oregon TSPC requires each candidate to be authorized to teach at one of three authorization levels: (1) K-12 (2) early childhood/elementary, (3) middle school/high school.

The Special Educator II license program is designed for teacher candidates who do not hold a teaching license.
