Welcome to Special Education @ WSU
The Special Education program area at Wayne State University is housed within the Teacher Education Division (TED) of the College of Education. The various special education programs prepare teachers of young children, youth, and young adults who have disabilities for employment in public and private school settings.
The special education programs are designed as endorsement programs that meet the Michigan Department of Education Special Education Rules for teacher preparation in the areas of Cognitive Impairment (CI), Emotional Impairment (EI), Learning Disibilities (LD), and Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The goal is to prepare teachers on current research-based, recommended practices and provide research-to-practice opportunities to broaden their knowledge and scholarship.
The CI program is offered both for undergraduate, initial teacher certification and as a graduate endorsement program. The EI, LD, and ASD programs are offered as graduate endorsement programs for those who seek initial teacher certification through the Masters in Arts in Teaching program (MAT), as well as, graduate endorsement programs that can be embedded within a Master of Education, Education Specialist, and doctoral programs.
