Special Education Practicum

Special Education Practicum

The practicum provides students with an in depth learning experience under the guidance of skilled cooperating practitioners and College supervisors. In addition, it allows practicum students the opportunity to collaborate with special education and general education instructors, enabling them to meet the standards under the state regulations for an initial license. This experience involves practicum students in all areas of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks. Students in the Department of Special Education must pass all applicable sections of the MTEL as designated by the Massachusetts Department of Education, including the Communication and Literacy Skills test, subject matter test and Foundations of Reading test (Moderate Disabilities Only), in order to register for the practicum. Students must submit formal documentation of test scores to the Department of Special Education prior to registration.
