Minnesota uses the federal definition of Specific Learning Disability (SLD). SLD is a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes involved in understanding or in using spoken or written language. The disability may be exhibited as an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations. SLD also includes conditions such as perceptual disabilities, brain injury, minimal brain dysfunction, dyslexia and developmental aphasia.
Candidates who complete all required course work and field experiences will develop the skills and knowledge necessary to design and implement individualized education program plans for students with learning disabilities.
