The quality of educational services for children and youth with exceptionalities resides in the abilities, qualifications, and competences of the personnel who provide the services (CEC, 1988). Consistent with the mission of the School of Education and Professional Studies (SEPS) of preparing leaders for service in our communities, it is the mission of the Department of Special Education to:
• prepare current and future educators to effectively meet the academic and social needs of individuals with disabilities;
• promote effective and equitable access to the general education curriculum for individuals with disabilities; and
• empower teachers to be leaders in their schools by developing, implementing, and evaluating research-based practices for ongoing school improvement.
