Graduate programs in special education are designed to develop competent, caring, and qualified special educators to teach diverse learners who present with disabilities in both inclusive and specialized urban settings. The programs' philosophical, conceptual, and instructional underpinnings derive from values and standards established by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) and the New York State Learning Standards, as well as the Lehman Urban Transformative Education (LUTE) framework, which recognizes difference and diversity as foundations for learning and teaching.

Lehman's programs work collaboratively with school personnel, parents, family and community members, and local community organizations to create humanistic, nurturing environments that are responsive to the needs of children in urban settings.
