Graduate Program in Special Education & Transition Services in Brain Injury

The George Washington University was the first post-secondary institution in the nation to have developed and implemented a specialized graduate degree program, geared toward training professionals in the field of special education and brain injury.  For the past five years I have had the privilege of being a guest instructor for this wonderful program.

The brain injury special educator may work directly with children with acquired brain injury (ABI) or with the school teams and families who support them. The curriculum is focused on training teachers to work in high need school districts and high poverty schools where the incidence of pediatric brain injury is very high. Students are offered the opportunity of specialized coursework, high quality supervised practica and internships, as well as ongoing school and community-based mentorship opportunities.

You can earn a Master’s while pursuing teacher licensure in Special Education.  You can prepare to become a special education teacher to serve school age children and youth with traumatic and acquired brain injuries. The program includes on-campus and on-line coursework, and is possible to complete within two years.

Scholarships are available to qualified students through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education that offers up to 75% of tuition. Questions? Contact Theresa Sacchi Armstrong at 202-994-7306 Read more about the George Washington University Graduate Program in Acquired Brain Injury.
