UTA Announces Plans to Cross-Train Special Education Teachers and Social Workers

Written by FWD501cReporter

The University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) has shared that they will cross-train graduate students interested in social work and special education to better serve grade-school children with disabilities and high needs.

UTA’s College of Education and School of Social Work will use a $1.08 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs to create an interdisciplinary master’s-level personnel preparation cohort over the next five years.

The program will better prepare professionals in both fields to serve families and students in high-need schools and with high-intensity needs. Special education and social work preservice students at UTA will take classes and train in the field together to learn the skills to support students and their families for educational success and their overall well-being.
