The Learning Disabilities Endorsement program provides a comprehensive program of study to address the needs of students with learning disabilities to help them reach their fullest potential in an academic setting. Certified teachers are prepared to understand the field of LD as it relates to general education issues and practices, as well as other exceptionalities in special education from inception to current practice.
Students in the MLDE program learn to effectively administer, interpret, and report formal and informal assessments of students to accurately identify disabilities and current levels of performance. Students also learn to develop and employ research-based instructional strategies to address individual needs in all educational environments. Course work and field experience emphasize consultation and collaboration with parents and allied service providers in light of inclusion and transition planning.
Candidates may opt solely for the Learning Disabilities Endorsement alone or incorporate it into a master’s degree.
