EPSE 390: Exceptional Learners

Introduces students to the concept of exceptionality as it reflects the special needs of individuals for whom they will be responsible in their classrooms, schools, and communities. The philosophy of inclusion will be emphasized. Students will learn how to identify and provide appropriate learning opportunities for children with special needs and ensure that they receive additional services to which they are entitled by the Saskatchewan Education Act and current Regulations. Students will become sensitive to cultural differences, the need to work with families and the importance of early intervention to prevent or ameliorate disability. This course addresses three of the six semester hours required by the Saskatchewan Professional Teachers Regulatory Board (SPTRB) related to Educational Psychology content for teacher certification.
