EDP-6700: Special Education Families and Networks

Families and communities play complex, vital roles in the learning process. In this course, we will examine the effects of family and cultural environments on learning, social interaction, and community contribution. We will also explore how the experiences of people with disabilities impact how they function within their families and in their communities. Students will learn how to best advocate for children and families, as well as how to encourage families to advocate for themselves. There will also be emphasis on developing and practicing skills related to crisis prevention and intervention. Students will investigate ways to creatively utilize community resources, as well as how to create thriving collaborations among all service providers, including parents, para-educators, tutors, and others from outside agencies.
