(4)

This methodology course provides candidates with the knowledge and skills necessary to teach and engage students with orthopedic disabilities in essential skills including academics, independent living skills, personal independence skills, communication skills, psychosocial skills, and career and vocational experiences.  Candidates develop and apply knowledge in adapting teaching techniques and methods of instruction to meet individual needs of students in schools, hospitals, and students’ homes.  Emphasis is given to factors such as individual needs, abilities, learning levels, and physical limitations of students, as well as the need for low and high assistive technology devices, services, and software applications that facilitate communication.  Effective instructional strategies and interventions are practiced and applied through 30 hours of fieldwork experiences.
