The purpose of this course is to contribute to the development of special education leaders who are equipped to think and act more effectively for the benefit of individuals with disabilities, families, and the organizations that serve disability populations. Students will examine the organization, administration, and supervision of special education programs provided by schools, agencies, and other support services, with particular emphasis on the role of the special education leader within such organizations. Students will research the development, implementation, and evaluation of effective program designs, and the analysis of leadership practices and personnel performance as factors in program efficacy. The impact of federal legislation, as well as state and local regulatory policies and procedures, on the development and implementation of effective programs will be addressed.
