Being able to pay for attending college is no easy task. Located in the Seay Building, the Office of Financial Aid offers assistance to you and your parents to ensure that you have the financial resources to focus on your education.
The Learning Disability Teacher Consultant Endorsement is an 8 course 24 credit sequence of courses designed to provide candidates with the ability to diagnose and correct learning disabilities. The program culminates with a 100-hour practicum in which candidates diagnose and create a remediation plan that supports the students in working toward their full potential.
In this program, you will learn to:
- Develop Individual Education Plans based on data derived from formal and informal assessment.
- Deliver services in a variety of environmental settings.
- Evaluate current practices in the education of students with disabilities and learn to make recommendations for the development of the child’s educational plan from research-based methods and materials.
- Choose appropriate tests and interpret results in order to meet the learning needs of individual learners.
- Collaborate as a part of the Child Study Team to provide students with appropriate placements in the least restrictive environment.
- Establish collaborative partnerships with other special educators, parents and families, students, and paraprofessionals.
The LDT-C can be taken as a separate program for those who already have a Masters degree and a Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement. This endorsement can also be incorporated into a M.A. in Special Education at Centenary.
As a Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant, you can make a significant difference in the lives of children with special needs.
