Assistant of Children with Special Needs

Online Assistant of Children with Special Needs Program


This certificate program responds to the current demand for trained practitioners at learning centers and public schools that serve children who have special needs. The population served includes children with behavior management needs, limited mobility, physical impairments, diagnosed learning disabilities, and/or children waiting for a very restrictive service. BCC students will learn the characteristics and needs of children with special needs in order to provide age-appropriate strategies in all aspects of their work with these children. Students will acquire skills in designing and planning activities that are developmentally appropriate experiences for children with special needs. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be able to continue their studies in Bronx Community College’s Education AS Degree Program.
