PSY 255 - Psychology of the Exceptional Individual


This course will provide a framework for understanding exceptional individuals through multiple approaches, including disability studies, strength-based and whole child perspectives. A general survey of the different types of exceptional development covered under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) will be included within the course, with a focus on the implementation of Response to Intervention (RTI). We will also be addressing many of the broader political, economic and social aspects of exceptionality. When discussing these issues we will focus on integrating theory and research with real world problems and student knowledge and experience. Course Codes: BR. Prereq: PSY.Q 101 or PSY.Q 102.
