Collaborative Special Education Law and Process

Drexel University School of Education

Meeting the needs of children with disabilities through school-family-community collaboration is an ambitious goal of educational policy in the U.S. As a result, schools and communities need highly qualified teachers, administrators, parents and advocates with legal knowledge and collaborative practical skills necessary to support the education of all students including those with disabilities, as mandated in IDEA.

In Drexel’s Certificate in Collaborative Special Education Law and Process courses, participants learn vital legally-grounded information and strategies to fully realize this mandated cooperative partnership.

This program is also offered as a concentration within the MS in Special Education or as a standalone program. Teacher certification is not a requirement for admission to the certificate or master’s degree program.


The Certificate in Collaborative Special Education Law and Process is comprised of 4 graduate courses for a total of 12 credits.
