Fenty, Nicole; Uliassi, Christine
Learning Disabilities: A Multidisciplinary Journal, v23 n1 p1-9 2018
A majority of students recommended for special education services struggle with reading. It is therefore imperative that teachers are prepared to address the needs of these students. The purpose of this study was to examine special education teacher candidates' beliefs, feelings of self-efficacy, and knowledge surrounding reading. Researchers surveyed teacher candidates across several pre-service special education preparation programs in a northeastern state. Findings suggest that teacher candidates believe they need additional training in reading. Implications for teacher education and future research are also provided.
