|Abstract:||Findings are presented from a cohort program between a university and local school districts to prepare special-education personnel. Participants (N=164), who were from 15 different cohorts, responded to an online survey. Follow-up face-to-face interviews were conducted with a representative sample of 29 participants. Perceived benefits included improved social-emotional and academic support; improved pedagogical skills, including academic and behavioral strategies, collaboration, and feeling more acculturated to the school climate; and improved logistical and financial supports. Implications for use of cohorts in the preparation of special-education personnel are discussed.|
