The Master of Arts in Special Education: Low Incidence Disabilities program includes two concentrations: Developmental Disabilities and Preschool Disabled. Students in this program focus on one concentration. Students with Developmental Disabilities are those individuals who have more severe disabilities, such as cognitive deficits, autism or other disabilities. Preschool Disabled are students with disabilities who are ages three to five years of age. The program provides students with an in-depth background in working with students who are either developmentally disabled or preschool disabled. Coursework actively involves students in critical thinking activities, where they examine and analyze theories and practices in teaching students in this domain. Students may apply to receive New Jersey certification as a Teacher of Students with Disabilities after the completion of the required 21 credits.
