Special Education (MAT)

Each child learns at his or her own pace, but some need a little extra attention. A Master of Teaching in Special Education from Webster University equips you to help children with disabilities develop into successful students.

The number of students diagnosed with learning disabilities is rising. Improvements and awareness in the field have led experts to identify problems at earlier ages, increasing the demand for qualified disability educators.

Our coursework positions you to meet these students’ unique needs. You’ll gain practical experience designing and modifying assessment plans. You’ll also learn how to develop instructional strategies and intervention plans based on the most up-to-date research.

We understand that working with disabled students doesn’t end in the classroom. You have to coordinate with administrators, parents and community members. Through our partnerships with area school districts, you’ll get real-world experience advocating for students with special needs.
