Special Education: Adapted Curriculum K-12
Thank you for your interest in the Special Education, Adapted Curriculum program offered through Radford University and the Virginia Consortium for Teacher Preparation in Special Education Adapted Curriculum: Supporting Students with Severe Disabilities and Autism. Other members of the consortium include George Mason University, James Madison University, Norfolk State University and Virginia Commonwealth University.
Although our coursework is delivered through a combination of hybrid and distance-learning approaches, we stress the importance of hands-on experiences. We use real-time, interactive, multipoint video conference and face-to-face instruction and interactive course management to build a single virtual “classroom” among participants at each of the six universities.
