Administration of Special Education
The special education programs at Teachers College build upon a more than 80-year tradition of leading the field of special education in policy, practice, and research for individuals with disabilities across the age span.

Students who earn M.A., Ed.M., Ed.D., and Ph.D. degrees in special education from Teachers College assume leadership and scholarly positions at all levels of professional activity including public and private schools, community and national service agencies, hospital and rehabilitation programs, colleges and universities, research centers, and local, state, and federal education agencies.

The graduate coursework, independent studies, research projects, and dissertations draw from the following five areas:

* Special education foundations. Includes coursework on theories of process and models of practice, cognitive structure and process, behavioral selectionism and complex behavior, disability constructs, equity and excellence in public policy, psycho-linguistics and verbal behavior, and family studies and child development.
* Service delivery systems. Includes administration and supervision, pedagogy, enrichment and acceleration, interdisciplinary programming, community-based systems change, infancy/early childhood intervention, elementary education, transition and rehabilitation, urban education, and technology.
* Exceptionality areas. Provides coursework in behavioral disorders (e.g., autism, emotional disturbance), blindness and visual impairment, deafness and hearing impairment, intellectual disability/autism, physical disabilities, and multiple handicapping conditions including intellectual disability/autism coupled with sensory and/or physical disabilities.
* Assessment and intervention strategies. Includes management of social and unsocial behavior, communication and language, mobility, mathematics, reading, problem solving, visual skills and visual perceptual processing, and self-regulation.
* Research and evaluation. Includes applied behavior analysis, experimental research with individuals, group experimental design, program evaluation, ethnography, and postpositivistic inquiry.
