Program Desc: The Post-Baccalaureate in Special Education, Learning Disabilities (K-12) program, offered by Walden University's The Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership, provides proven practices and teaching methods to promote social and academic achievement for students with learning disabilities. This program incorporates the Council for Exceptional Children Standards and the Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium Standards. In this program, you will: examine the characteristics of learning disabled youngsters in the context of characteristics of all types of learners; learn how to plan for and support the individual needs and strengths of students with exceptionalities, in particular those who are learning disabled; discover how to build collaborative relationships with parents and agencies to help promote learning in all content areas; and participate in supervised fieldwork and demonstration teaching to prepare you for the real-world life of a special educator. 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.
