  • Specific Learning Disability (SLD)

    A Specific Learning Disability (SLD) is a brain-based disorder impacting one’s ability in understanding spoken or written language which can result in difficulties with listening, speaking, reading, writing, spelling, or mathematics. Students with SLD who continue to need interventions that significantly differ in intensity and duration from what can be provided solely through general education resources to make or maintain sufficient progress may receive services through Exceptional Student Education.
