The M.Ed Special Education Program
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The program prepares the students to
work as Master Trainers in the field of
Intellectual Disability in Colleges and
Universities. They will also work in
higher positions in Govt. Departments
and Non-Government Organisations
in India and abroad. Special Education
is an emerging field with the human
resource requirement having increased
in the past decade. With the Persons
with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities,
Protection of Rights and Full
Participation) Act, 1995 having shown
indications that education is the right
of every child with disability, the role
of Special Educators has further been
emphasized. Keeping in view the need
for Special Teachers at various levels, the
M.Ed. Special Education (MR) has been
launched. If we look at the scenario of
educational services in the Country, we
have a large number of Special Schools,
Special classes in Regular Schools,
Integrated Schools, Inclusive Education
and Special Education Programming in
Community Based setting. The M.Ed.
Special Education (MR), aims at training
Special Educators to work with children
having Mental Retardation, in different
settings as mentioned above. A person
qualified in M.Ed. Special Education
(MR) can serve as Master Trainer to
teach Special Educators undergoing
training at Diploma or Graduation levels
in Special Education (MR). In addition
they can assume the role of Researchers,
Leaders, Capacity Builders, Developer
and Catalysts in the area of Special
Education (MR). After completing the
M.Ed.Special Education (MR) program
the student-teachers will:
- Develop potential teacher educators to exert leadership in advocating and meeting educational needs of children with disabilities in various settings
