The Teacher of Students with Disabilities Endorsement is designed and developed for New Jersey teachers who hold an initial certification in another teaching specialty. The major area of the program includes initial New Jersey certification as a Teacher of Students with Disabilities for certified elementary and secondary teachers. Because of the need for general education teachers to be dually certified in general and special education, Seton Hall's Special Education Endorsement adheres to the New Jersey state law that requires the development of recommendations on awareness of and instructional methods for teaching children with special needs, autism and other developmental disabilities.
