INCL 613 Understanding the IEP and 504 Plan the Classroom

3 credits 42.0 hours
600 level graduate course

This course is designed to enhance instructional skills as they relate to supporting students with special needs. IDEA (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act) was originally enacted in 1975 to ensure that children with disabilities have the opportunity to receive a free appropriate public education. Before there was IDEA, there was the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability. Section 504 of this Act continues to play an important role in education. Special education can be a complex road of acronyms, legalese, and specialized paperwork. Participants in this course will learn to navigate the special education process. This course is structured to present the learner with the essential knowledge base and accompanying skills needed to successfully teach school students who have special needs, which are addressed through special education or accommodation plans. Graduate students will study the history, programs, and legislation as they relate to school and its daily operation. Case studies and practical application of program specifications will be utilized in the study of this course.
