A Master of Science in Special Education is an excellent option for educators seeking to strengthen their credentials in assisting students with cognitive differences, learning disabilities and/or autism spectrum disorders. According to the National Center for Education Statistics, 6.5 million children – or 13 percent of total public school enrollment – were served by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act as of the 2013-2014 school year.
