Serving Children with Autism (and the Teachers who serve them)
Help elevate the Teacher as Leader in the ASD M.Ed. program. As a leader in autism study and training, the TU Training and Immersion Classroom offers effective early intervention for young children with social communication impairments through the Baltimore County Infant and Toddler Program. This hands-on learning creates immersion training opportunities for Towson University pre-service students as well as in-service educators in Baltimore County.
You can enhance the opportunity for teachers to work with the growing population of English learners in today’s classrooms. Through research, innovative undergraduate and graduate programs and professional development using advanced technology, your support offers both teachers and English learners the opportunity to succeed.
Endowing department chair positions or professorships ensures that the positions exist in perpetuity in the College of Education, with naming opportunities available. All academic programs in the College of Education can benefit from the resources and prestige that come with the establishment of an endowed chair or professorship.
Funding exceptional faculty and student research opportunities in the College of Education is critical to the student experience and an excellent incentive for recruiting outstanding faculty and building a highly-credentialed faculty team.
“The greatest joy for a teacher is seeing the look on a child’s face when she or he perseveres and succeeds. For children who are English learners, this success comes more easily when they have a teacher trained to meet their needs.”
