EDUC616 - Foundations in Special Education and the Individuals with Disabilities Education


This course addresses legal trends and issues related to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), including the identification process that schools must follow: child study, assessment, eligibility, IEP development, and placement. Educators will analyze the legal requirements as defined in IDEA, specifically, the requirements for Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE), the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE), and the development of Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). Cases will be used to facilitate online discussions regarding beliefs, best practices, challenges, current research, and applications to individuals’ own teaching practice.
