About the Special Education for International Schools (Teaching Students with Exceptionalities) credential

The professors are flown into Qatar from SUNY, USA, ensuring the recognition of the certification as being in person and of a postgraduate credential (the admission process and the certificate is through SUNY Buffalo State). The integrity of our partnership and our programs with SUNY are very important to us, allowing us to deliver the best development options to Qatar schools. Below is a link to the information on the SUNY website which we believe you will find helpful as you decide if this kind of targeted and ongoing PD in exceptionalities is important for your faculty and for your school. We believe the structure of a series of five postgraduate classes will lead to a deep understanding of the subject and this understanding reflected in your school’s teaching environment.

It is also important to note, after completion of this credential, students are just 5 courses away from getting a SUNY Masters if they wish to continue. All 5 courses are stackable towards the SUNY Masters Degree.

We look forward to welcoming your school leaders and educators to this extremely valuable learning experience.
