Education Teaching Video Series

Iona College’s Education Department has inaugurated a series of videos for the purpose of collaborating with departments within the College with similar interests.

As seen in the presentations, these guests are simply some of the most remarkable individuals who were born with special conditions that afflicted every area of their lives with the exception of their amazing sense of purpose to overcome the obstacles placed in front of them by this birth circumstance. In some cases the presenter is the individual teaching the individuals and helping to make life so much more meaningful for the special needs populations.

The videos in this series are a product of the graduate-level courses, EDU 660, 661, 667, 669 and our undergraduate course EDU 210. In this series, we hope to highlight guest speakers and practitioner teachers who will speak directly to one or more of the current (2017) New York State Department of Education Special Education classifications. As per the Understanding Special Education website, there are 13 categories as defined by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). To qualify for special education, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) team must determine that a child has one of the following:

Autism Orthopedic Impairment
Blindness Other Health Impaired
Deafness Specific Learning Disability
Emotional Disturbance Speech or Language Impairment
Hearing Impairment Traumatic Brain Injury
Intellectual Disability Visual Impairment
Multiple Disabilities
