Special Education for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners Graduate Certificate

As America experiences an increasingly diverse student population, educators must acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to meet their needs — especially when those studies possess exceptionalities.

Based on a holistic model that shows the inter-relationships of the school, home and community, the George Washington University’s graduate certificate program in Special Education Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners is designed to enhance the skills of current teachers in their classroom and provide a more comprehensive, beneficial education for all.

As you pursue this graduate certificate, you will become steeped in an academic foundation of current research, theory and data-driven best practices for teaching and responding to the unique needs of these culturally and linguistically diverse students, including: the development of language and literacy; development of young children with disabilities; and issues of social justice in teaching CLD/E students.
