Application of scientifically-based approaches and promising practices is incorporated through required field experience with a focus on structured teaching, incidental teaching, and augmentative alternative communication. In addition, students will investigate how opportunities to learn through music, art, assistive technology, and content-area curriculum provide opportunities to build on individual interests, preferences, and diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds, and to access the general education curriculum as articulated through New York State Learning Standards in content areas. For Autism Spectrum Annotation scholars only. (Corequisite: EDUC 814)
