List of Accredited Online Degrees

Students pursuing degrees in Education can specialize in several concentrations within the area of study. The field of Education is constantly in need of well trained and educated individuals to further teach an impressionable younger student body the core fundamentals in academics. Education degrees concentrations can be in elementary, secondary or post-secondary, special needs, technology or counseling and administrative roles.

The concentration of earning an Education degree in the subject of Special Needs is a challenging and rewarding pursuit. The overwhelming need for teachers in general, is amplified by the lack of teachers with the capabilities of teaching and providing support for children and young adults with learning disabilities. The specialized curriculum of student teachers aspiring to become special needs teachers, differs in the amount of attention given to the processes involved in the individual planning and systematic monitoring of teaching procedures, adapting equipment and materials, ensuring accessible settings and many other avenues designed to help students with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and success within a school setting and in local communities.

Special needs teachers provide more than just an altered academic program, they also provide challenged students the many other attributes associated with the proper facilitation of an education. Many students may need non-academic resources to further learning abilities. Such services provided by schools may include; speech and language pathology, audiology, psychological services, physical therapy, occupational therapy, counseling services, rehabilitation counseling, orientation and mobility services, medical services, parent counseling and training, school health services, school social work, assistive technology services.

Graduates of a special education degree program will complete a minimum of a Bachelors level of education, in addition to supplementing teaching practicums with specific needs, counseling and academic preparation courses designed for individual disabilities. The student teacher will be able to pursue entry-level positions at many learning institutions, both public and private, as well as higher learning levels.
