EDIS 535 Families of Children with Special Needs

This course gives an in-depth study of the unique needs and experiences of families who have a child with a disability. Centered on active participation and case study, the course will allow students to explore critical periods of transition in the child's life (birth through adulthood) and the implications for the family. Legal mandates will be discussed and skills in family assessment, interviewing techniques, communication and proactive support strategies will be developed.
