In this program students will complete the requirements to be recommended for the added endorsement as Special Education Generalist. The added endorsement is available to students that hold a valid Colorado teaching license in another discipline.
Students in the Special Education Added Endorsement program are provided the experiences and academic support to learn how to meet the needs of all students with disabilities in the general education classroom. Students will be taught to focus on student strengths in order to support academic and social progress in inclusive environments. Coursework and practicum placements will be linked by assignments. These carefully planned assignments will allow students to practice their skills and develop techniques and materials that will lead to their successful development at teachers.
The Added Endorsement program is a cohort model program that begins each fall. The program requires students to take each class in the semester as indicated on the Added Endorsement program planning form. Students must commit to completing these courses in sequence.
Students have the option of taking one course in the summer (SPED 5001) as unclassified students before they start the program.
The Added Endorsement program requires students to participate in one field experience. Students can choose to complete this experience in the spring or summer semesters.
