This minor is intended to boost knowledge and application of special education and disability awareness, especially in ages birth to 21. Knowing special education law, applications, and practices within educational settings may allow psychologists working with children (e.g., therapists, school psychologists) a means to better recognize, serve, and advocate for children with disabilities.
Note: Earning a minor does not provide a teacher certification in any way.
