Do States Have Certification Requirements for Preparing General Education Teachers to Teach Students with Disabilities? Experience in the Northeast and Islands Region - This report examines how the nine states and territories served by the Regional Education Laboratory Northeast and Islands prepare their general education teachers to teach students with disabilities.

The report identifies eight special education content areas that one or more states and territories in the region require teachers to study, and describes commonalities and differences in state certification requirements for general education teachers to teach students with disabilities.
