The minor in Special Education - High Incidence Disabilities provides undergraduate students with knowledge and experiences in special education focused on students with behavior and learning disabilities (e.g., learning disabilities, emotional disturbance, ADHD, speech and language disorders, mild intellectual disabilities). These disabilities are the most frequently represented areas of disabilities in schools today with students being served across a continuum of placements. Students will take courses from within the Department of Learning Sciences.
A grade of C- or higher is required in all courses counting toward the minor.
Students interested in teacher certification in special education should review the certification requirements page and contact the College of Education and Human Development Office of Academic Assistance, 404-413-8000, College of Education and Human Development building, 3rd floor, Suite 300.
