As technology advances, the assistive technology industry will see increased growth. Experienced professionals with the skills to implement the right technology in the best way will be in demand.
Graduates of the M.Ed. program in assistive technologies gain the skills they need to work effectively with individuals with disabilities, their parents, teachers, professionals and school districts. They are prepared to assume leadership roles in school, social services and community settings.
I really liked the flexibility of choosing which classes I wanted to take and how many to take at one time. This was helpful as I worked full time. The coursework and assignments gave me the opportunity to take what I was learning and put it into practice immediately. I loved that the professors let you choose what you wanted to focus on and emphasized choosing projects that would help you in your daily work as an educator.
