Special Education

Special Education (waiver option) endorsement:

Being a special education teacher offers many employment opportunities as well as options to work with students in small groups and defined disability types. Autism, learning disability and communication disorders are three examples. By completing WSU’s program, you will have Washington’s multi-categorical endorsement for all 14 disability types, Preschool–grade 12.

All of the endorsement courses are offered in an online-only, asynchronous format. Students can access the lessons and complete the assignments when it is convenient to them; there is no designated time that students have to be online in a given week. SPEC_ED 301 should be taken as the first class.
