The primary purpose of Special Education is to individualize educational instruction in order to meet the unique educational and related needs of individuals with disabilities. The Special Education Endorsement Program at The University of Montana is designed to prepare teachers to work with children who are at-risk and children with disabilities in inclusive Preschool-12th grade (P-12) settings.
The Phyllis J. Washington College of Education and Human Sciences is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Montana State Board of Public Education.
