ESE Course for Music Educators

FMEA, The Florida DOE, The Florida Center for Interactive Media (FCIM) and the Division of Cultural Affairs collaborated to develop an ESE course for music educators. Dr. Alice-Ann Darrow developed the music content for the course. It is designed to provide music educators with introductory information about the foundations of exceptional student education and provision of services in Florida, as well as appropriate instructional strategies for teaching students with disabilities. Each school district is responsible to determine if the content of this 20-hour course satisfies the requirement for Renewal Credit in Teaching Students with Disabilities (DPS 2014-12).
