A number of you have asked for an additional course focusing on working with children having special needs. We are happy to present ECE 4210: Design of Instruction for Children with Exceptional Learning Needs, a brand new course offered this winter. This course builds on what you learned in ECE 4150 (which is a prerequisite) and focuses on supporting young children with exceptional learning needs and working with a multidisciplinary team. ECE 4210 meets on Mondays from 4 – 7pm.
Please contact Dr. Tomczyk if you have any questions or want to know more about the course.
