|SOE Approved for a MPS in Early Childhood and Special Education|
The 49-credit program will lead to initial certification in both Early Childhood (Birth-Grade 2) and Special Education (Birth-Grade 2).
"The program was developed for those interested in becoming early childhood educators who can also work effectively with young children with different types of learning disabilities," said Dr. Shelley B. Wepner, Dean of the School of Education. "From foundations in both early childhood and special education to instructional, assessment, and classroom management strategies for teaching young children in general and young children with special needs, this comprehensive course of study helps early childhood educators succeed with all types of young learners in day care centers, nursery schools, and early childhood classrooms."
Classes will be available starting in Fall 2012. For more information or to register for classes please contact Dr. Patricia Vardin, Chair of the Early Childhood Department at (914)798-2714 or Graduate Advising at (914) 323-5366.
