Preventive techniques are emphasized for classrooms in which teachers need to accommodate students with diverse levels of functioning, as well as diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Twenty hours of fieldwork in one setting help students apply the techniques reviewed during class. This course satisfies the NYC Department of Education human relations requirement.
