Program Desc: The Post-Baccalaureate in Special Education, Emotional/Behavioral Disorders (K-12) program, offered by Walden University's The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership, examines behavior and developmental strategies that can lead to a positive and inclusive learning environment for students with emotional and/or behavioral disorders. By incorporating the Council for Exceptional Children Standards and the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium Standards, this program will help guide you in promoting positive behavior and effectively respond to misbehavior. In this program, you will: examine the characteristics of EBD youngsters in comparison to all learners; learn how to plan for and support the individual needs and strengths of students with exceptionalities, in particular those with emotional and behavioral exceptionalities; discover how to develop an Individualized Education Program (IEP) that speaks to the learning needs of EBD students; and participate in supervised fieldwork and demonstration teaching to prepare you for the real-world life of a special educator when you complete the program and earn your teaching license. This program can be completed in 16 months. For individuals seeking a comparable teaching license in a state other than Minnesota, Walden’s advisors can provide individuals with guidelines and other information about licensure. It remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with the out-of-state licensure requirements for the state in which he or she seeks to be licensed, as requirements vary state by state. Walden University makes no representation or guarantee that successful completion of any program or coursework will permit them to obtain state certification or licensure in their home state. Before Walden can recommend you for licensure to the Minnesota Board of Teaching, you must also pass the PRAXIS I and the PRAXIS II tests pertinent to your teaching content area.
