    the college of education of up-diliman specifically offers that course.

    however, before u enter, pls do your homework. check out the curriculum and get feedback from graduate students who are actually enrolled or, if possible those who have shifted from that course to another.

    believe me, ull not regret it as long as u prepare for it. also, check the subjects if these really appeal to u.

    in the college of home economics, there is also this course called family life and child development. whereas, in ateneo it a specialization in their psychology program..

    tandaan.. it's not bec an institution is very well known eh maganda na lahat ng mga programa dito.. ok..

    hope that i have helped u in a way..

    I am taking up my MA is UP College of Education. They offer Sped both in the undergrad and grad course. UP Dil. is one of the most respected and prestigous schools that offer sped. But there are also different schools specializing in different exceptionalities. DLSU/Miriam is known for its Sign Language Program (for people with hearing disabilities), PNU is known for SPED in Visually challenged people. UP is for those with Behavioral Disorders (Mentally retarded, Autism)

    Esprit.. I think St. Joseph College of QC offers SPED program also, for MA. Just check.

    More and more teachers are enrolled in SPED because of the fact it is in demand in the US. I have classmates that are OT, PT, Behavioral Therapists, Psychologists who are currently enrolled in MA.

    Cool

    You're right, shnicky... St. Joseph's College of QC also has a MA SpEd program:

    MASTER OF ARTS IN SPECIAL EDUCATION
    Majors:
    AUTISM
    MENTAL RETARDATION

    and...

    GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN AUTISM
    GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN AUTISM
    GRADUATE DIPLOMA IN MENTAL RETARDATION
    GRADUATE CERTIFICATE IN MENTAL RETARDATION

    I'm a psychology graduate and I'm also planning to take M.A. SpEd in June 2006. I still have a lot of time left to do some research on which university to choose.

    Which school offers the best curriculum for graduate students who want to major/concentrate on behavioral disorders?

    I hope Pexers (especially those who are currently taking MA Sped) would share some info/opinion on this.

    I am not sure if there is a university offering major in behavioral disorder. I have classmates who have trained in the US for that specific major. Check UP or PNU about that. Masaya ang SPED.

  10. #10
    I took up 9 units of sped in my undergrad course. Oo nga, masaya sa Sped..mahirap, pero masaya!

    Do you know any sped schools which accept volunteers?
    I want to tutor special children or work as a teacher aide.. of course for free.
    I have a lot of free time in the afternoon.

    There are a lot of schools who accept volunteer assistance. But I'm not sure what specific school is that. I think some of my classmate are volunteer as of now. Why don't you try the ADHD Society of the Philippines and Autism Society to help you find one. They are really active organizations who promote their mission to different schools in the country.

    ALso, if you would like to finish your MA early, try DLSU. Sobra bilis lang tapos na MA mo!

  12. #12
    Thanks, shnicky. I'll contact those organizations.

    Hmmm.. pwede rin sa DLSU, para mabilis matapos. And I heard karamihan sa sped professors dun from PNU.

    For now, mag-iipon muna ako.. para makapag-full-time student pa next year.

    Hi,

    How good are the job market and opportunities of Sped graduates in the Philippines?

    For Sped graduates: Are you considering working abroad?

    Thanks.

    What is American Boards?

    American Boards is recognized as the "Alternate Route to Teacher Certification" open to all professionals interested to have a career in teaching. It is an approved provider of teacher certification in the federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Through the "Passport to Teaching Certification" program, computer-based assessments of rigorous standards in subject area and professional teaching knowledge are administered to professionals seeking certification. This new approach helps states to effectively identify individuals who are qualified to teach in their classrooms.




    Who can take American Boards Passport to Teaching Program?

    It is available to fresh-graduates, mid -career changers and teachers seeking certification. Any four-year course is accepted and experience is not a requirement.

    Now, both teachers and non-teachers have equal opportunities to landing a teaching job in the US.

    We invite you to attend our info-seminar on November 11 at the SM Conference Hall in Cebu and November 12 at the SM Megatrade Conference Hall to get more information about the American Board Passport To Teaching and how you can apply right here in the Philippines. Entrance fee is P100 only.
