September 22, 2016. The American Montessori Society is conceptualizing a new Special Education endorsement that will support AMS-credentialed teachers in more effectively working with children with disabilities.
To this end, we invite all AMS members to log in to their individual member page and take a survey that was developed by our Special Education Endorsement Task Force. It will provide us with helpful feedback on:
- How we should design the special needs endorsement,
- Relevant topics that are important to you, and,
- Your specific needs in special education.
Natalie Danner, PhD, a member of the AMS Special Education Task Force as well as an assistant professor at Western Oregon University and a Montessori educator, will be collecting and analyzing the feedback.
The deadline to participate in the survey is Wednesday, October 12.
Thank you; we appreciate your time and input.
