Summary

The Special Education Early Childhood Program of The George Washington University is a one year, full time, noncategorical, 36-hour masters program. The program strives to synthesize multidisciplinary theory and integrate this knowledge into conceptual patterns that guide educators. It seeks to tie theory to practice in the service of the handicapped child. A field based training program has been designed and consists of a primary staff of five who guide the students through this learning experience. Fifty percent of instructional time is spent in the field. Clinical professors accompany students into the classroom of two demonstration centers. One center services severely and multiply handicapped children ages zero to three; the other serves minimally handicapped children ages three to eight. Students spend seven weeks at each site designing and implementing appropriate learning instructional strategies under professorial guidance. The final internship experience sees students practicing in a range of special education sites from infant stimulation to teacher training. The broad based generic nature of the program offers students a springboard to a variety of teaching and leadership roles. Course work is designed to build insights and clinical proficiency in the following areas: (1) multidisciplinary theory, (2) child development, (3) handicapping conditions, (4) identification assessment, (5) clinical teaching, (6) counseling techniques, and (7) alternative models of service.
