About the course

Do you want to make a difference in the lives of students who need your help?

As we continue to improve in our ability to identify students with learning disabilities and diverse needs, the importance of individuals who are trained to help these students increases. Students with special educational needs require special services in order to perform in the classroom and grow as students and individuals. That is why schools are always looking for talented individuals who can provide their students with the appropriate interventions to help them succeed.

  • Are you patient?
  • Do you like working with children?
  • Do you have a passion for education?
  • Do you want to make a difference?

If you answer positively to any of these questions, then this is the career for you.
