FMEA, The Florida DOE, The Florida Center for Interactive Media (FCIM), and the Division of Cultural Affairs collaborated to develop an ESE course for fine arts educators. Dr. Alice-Ann Darrow developed the music content for the course. It is designed to provide music educators with introductory information about the foundations of exceptional student education and provision of services in Florida, as well as appropriate instructional strategies for teaching students with disabilities.
Each school district is responsible to determine if the content of this 20-hour course satisfies the requirement for Renewal Credit in Teaching Students with Disabilities (DPS 2014-12).
To Enroll, visit FL-PDA.org, go to the Independent Courses section, and look for Teaching Students with Disabilities in the Fine Arts.
