The course Working with Students with Special Educational Needs introduces you to the field of special education and the individual differences and requirements of students with special educational needs.
The course begins by outlining core elements of special education, including the change in educational legalization in recent years with particular emphasis on legislation in the United States. The responsibilities of teachers and trainers are also detailed, along with the individual educational plan (IEP).

The course provides key information about each of these disabilities and describes practical strategies on how to assist and teach students with these disabilities.
