Language Literacy/Specialized Instruction

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Combining the disciplines of Special Education (Learning Disabilities) and Reading Education (Developmental and Remedial Reading), the 13-course sequence leads to either a Master of Arts or a Master of Education degree. Students begin with a theoretical understanding of both fields, then master assessment techniques and diagnostic strategies that produce appropriate remedial programming. Course work focuses on a theoretical understanding of reading and learning disabilities in individuals of all ages, and practical courses provide experiences in the assessment, diagnosis and remediation of children and adolescents with reading and other learning disabilities.
