"The LORD is my light and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
For You, LORD, have made me glad through Your work; I will triumph in the works of Your hands."
-Psalms 27:1; 92:4 NKJV
WELCOME TO SPECIAL EDUCATION PROGRAM (SPED)
The New Era University Special Education Program for Children with Special Needs offers services for young students of ages 3-21. More specifically, it caters to the needs of children with mental retardation, learning disabilities, autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and Emotional and Behavioral Disorders.
