I recently obtained intial certification for Childhood Education and am now interested in going for advanced certification in Special Education. My alma matter offers this certification but it is going to come at a heavy fee consdiering it's a private university. I was wondering if anyone knows of any fellowships or special programs in the NYC/Long Island area. I'd really like to become certified and am trying to find the least expensive way to do it. Also does anyone know if Special Education teachers are really in high need, more specifically so in NY?
