New York University Steinhardt’s special education program helps to prepare those in the program with the tools necessary to teach students with or without learning and physical disabilities. The program trains future educators to see each student as having varying amounts of untapped potential and degrees of skills.
The special education department also includes programs dealing with early childhood education, with an emphasis on helping children with disabilities reach their full potential. The master’s degree programs offer graduate degrees in both early childhood education as well as early childhood special education training. The programs provide students with initial teaching certifications for New York State for birth through grade two.
