Overview

What makes an OBU Special Education degree special?

In our special education department, we emphasize the importance of implementing a multisensory approach to all learners. We study a wide range of disabilities from mild to severe and provide students the instruction necessary to enhance and broaden their knowledge and tailor the program to their area of interest. Graduates of the Special Education program of Oklahoma Baptist University are prepared and confident to conduct IEP meetings, provide strategies to improve inclusion success and implement positive behavior support in classroom settings to meet the needs of students from an emotional and behavioral standpoint.
