Special Education
The special education program at Indiana University South Bend prepares individuals to teach students with disabilities in the P-12 setting. The undergraduate and graduate programs emphasize the knowledge, dispositions, and skills required of special education teachers. These programs incorporate the performance standards of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium (INTASC), and Indiana’s developmental standards. The special education programs are performance-based, and students’ progress in acquiring knowledge, demonstrating skills, and exhibiting appropriate dispositions are assessed throughout their teacher education programs.
