Attending a reputable special education college or university, as well as a good program, can make all the difference in the world when it comes to finding the right position after you graduate. Not all colleges are the same, and special education programs vary from college to college. Some programs focus on training teachers how to work with disabled students, others focus on how to help talented and gifted children excel academically. Before you jump into a special education program, we highly recommend that you take time to thoroughly research all your options.
