IECD-527 Law, Policy and Advocacy

4 semester credits
Fielding Graduate University emphasizes leadership development, social and economic justice, and environmental sustainability. Drawing on the specialized knowledge and skill gained from IECD courses and practitioner experience, this course emphasizes development of leaders through effective advocacy in law, policy, and program development decisions to ensure all children and families can maximize each child’s success. Although the US Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) forms the foundation for this course, students are encouraged to research relevant laws and regulations in their home regions and to make practical recommendations to improve policies and programs, transdisciplinary collaborations, and parent engagement. The course encourages students’ public advocacy and leadership on behalf of children and families in their communities, workplaces, and society at large.
