Early Childhood Special Education

Early Childhood Special Education prepares students to work with young children with disabilities and their families in inclusive, collaborative, and natural environments.

As part of the 30 credits of coursework, students complete 6 credits of practicum experiences in high-need urban settings involving collaborative partners within the UM as well as community agencies. The program culminates in the presentation of an Advocacy Capstone project. Coursework, practicum experiences, and Capstone projects start scholars on a pathway to advocacy for high-need children and their families.
