The Special Education Department

The Special Education Department

The study program in the department of special education emphasizes an understanding of the characteristics of those with special needs throughout their lifetimes and recognition of their legal rights and our involvement with them as educators.

The special education department has adopted the policy of responsible integration, according to which “all pupils belong”. They are entitled to equal rights under law, to equal opportunities for developing a full life in school and in the community. This can be accomplished through a variety of services and support system within a framework of a positive educational environment, guaranteeing a sense of connection and belonging.

The college’s department of special education views the special education teacher as one of the central agents for change which aid the pupil in developing his abilities. The education program presents the college students with knowledge, concepts and approaches and strives to instill in the students a critical view and constant evaluation of the material studied visa avis their personal values and beliefs. In a similar manner the program equips students with tools which will help in the development of the physical, intellectual and socio-emotional abilities of the special needs pupils.

The information age and the state of present knowledge obligate the special education teacher to independent study and co-operative work in order to solve problems in situations of uncertainty, to design varied study environments, and to employ creativity in order to enhance learning.  Development of these skills is embedded in the educational program of the student of special education at our college.
