Course Overview

In this course we will break down various learning disabilities, review diagnostic criteria for varying disabilities, explain pre-referrals and data collection, and discuss accommodations and modifications. After course completion, participants should be able to better identify learning challenges, know the steps of the pre-referral system, recognize appropriate forms of data collection, and participants should be able to distinguish between accommodations and modifications. As with all of our courses, an optional, live session will be planned for each week to extend our learning as a group.
