The Identification and Education of Students with Special Needs course is a 50 hour, online course. Course participants will receive 5 PLU credits from Southwest Georgia RESA after successful course completion.

Identification and Education of Students with Special Needs

Course participants will develop instructional and leadership skills needed for teaching students with special learning needs, as well as students at-risk for academic and social failure. The concepts of teacher collaboration, least restrictive environment, accommodations and modifications, confidentiality, behavior management, identification, and giftedness will be reviewed using authentic case studies. Participants will reflect upon how these concepts drive instructional practices in today's challenging classroom environment. Using the cases as a launching point, teachers will be given the opportunity to participate in on-line discussions regarding beliefs, best practices, challenges, and current research.

The cost to complete this course is $310 for 5 PLU credits for District Members and $360 for Non-District Members. Non-District Members are also required to pay a $50 service fee that is paid to SW RESA. If you would like to participate in this course, but your school and/or district will be paying for you, you must contact Dr. Mercedes Cordero to make the arrangement.
