Congrats!!  I’m currently in the process of finishing my M.S. Ed right now.  It will be a lot of work, but it’s so worth it!  Good luck!

@lovelove1028:Congrats! I’m getting my Masters in Special Education this May. I was able to complete the program in a year but that meant taking some additional masters courses my senior year of college. No fun.

Also, I just came on here because it’s 5am and I just finished half of my 40 page IEP and transitional planning paper that’s due on Monday. Get ready and good luck πŸ˜›

@lovelove1028:  I’m having the same problem with my Special Education program.  I also worked in a school that focused on children with autism, where we used ABA as well.  The best advice I can give you is to try and focus on topics for projects that are geared more towards the population you want to work with.

@lovelove1028:  I know with my program, I had to take a lot of courses that covered a range of disabilities. The fact is, autism (classic) is actually a low-incidence disability. That’s why a lot of time is spent focusing on high-incidence disabilities such as ADHD and learning disabilities. However, a lot of times you are given an assignment and allowed to choose your own topic. For instance, I have to write a transitional plan for a student that I observed so I chose to observe a student with autism. Also, I have a paper due next week on research based strategies, so I’ll be writing about strategies for students with autism. It’s pretty easy to make a graduate program your own. And it’s not like it’s a bad thing that you’re learning about a bunch of different disabilities. After all, you are studying special ed, not autism ed. You want to make sure that you have a lot of knowledge about a variety of disabilities under your belt because the field of special education is changing. If individualized ABA becomes less common and inclusive methods become the norm (which I think is the way we’re heading) you’re going to need to have something else to fall back on.
