EDUC 576 - High and Low Incidence Comprehensive Seminar

(3 credits)

High and Low Incidence Comprehensive Seminar is a course that focuses on observation and demonstration of teaching competencies to students with complex learning needs in special education programs. Students will review the characteristics and education implications of students with a wide variety of disabilities and receive instruction in the use of specific interventions from evidence based practice in the classroom setting. This course also provides an overview of the major trends and issues in educating students with high and low incidence disabilities. 

This seminar is required for students pursuing a special education certification at the post-baccalaureate level. The Comprehensive Seminar design offers candidates the option of completing observation or clinical experiences in their place of employment (with district approval) and/or experiences in times when students are available for instruction (before school activities/after school activities, related programs and services). 

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to use knowledge gained through prerequisite coursework and related observations to systematically plan for, deliver, and assess the needs of students with high and low incidence disabilities through projects, case studies, observations, and evaluations.
