The Angela Wilkins Program of Graduate Studies in Education: A School-Based Internship/ Master’s Degree of Education Program in Moderate Disabilities

The Carroll School, a pioneer in educating children with dyslexia, collaborates with Lesley University and Buckingham Browne & Nichols School (BB&N) in two dynamic Master’s Degree Programs that offer:

  1. Collaboration with experienced mentor teachers;
  2. Preparation in teaching at two exceptional schools;
  3. Daily immersion in practical application;
  4. Opportunity for Orton-Gillingham Training;
  5. Participation in Carroll Cognitive Development Research Project, designed to better understand the broad range of academic needs and to provide targeted interventions.

The program is named in honor of Angela Wilkins, a long-time leader in the field of remediation of reading disabilities, who brought this program of graduate studies to Carroll School.  Carroll’s program combines with a similar program in general education at BB&N to form a comprehensive set of course and internship opportunities.   

By participating in these school-based internship programs, you will earn a Master’s Degree in education leading to initial licensure for teachers of students with moderate disabilities. Choose either:
