As part of Lasell College, we have developed a post-baccalaureate certificate program in Teaching Bilingual English Leaners with Disabilities. The certificate program encompasses four 6-week courses and it is 100% online. The courses are:
- Fundamentals of Bilingual Special Education: Policies, Laws, and Practice
- Removing Barriers for Classroom Assessment and Instruction of Bilingual Students
- Assessment for Equity and Inclusion of Bilingual Students with and without Disabilities
- Culturally Responsive Individualized Educational Planning for Bilingual Students with Disabilities
The goal of the certificate is to better prepare teachers- general, ESL, and special education teachers to work better, more informed and more efficiently with English learners who are struggling.
