Special Education

Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) Training Project

Specific Learning Disabilities: Eligibility Determination under IDEA 2004 is a professional development module created by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, Special Education Planning and Policy Development (SEPP) office for district and building level administrators, general and special educators, related service providers and parents that provides information regarding requirements when a student is being assessed for special education with a Specific Learning Disability (SLD).

  • learn what a Specific Learning Disability is;
  • become aware of how classroom practices and SLD eligibility are related;
  • become aware of the process of determining eligibility with a SLD;
  • learn how to use the forms and technical assistance around SLD.
