Specific Learning Disability Eligibility Guidelines

A learning disability means a disorder in one or more basic psychological processes involved in understanding or using language, spoken or written, that may manifest itself in an imperfect ability to listen, think, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematical calculations.
The term does not include children who have learning problems which are primarily the result of exclusionary factors that include visual, hearing, or motor disabilities, emotional disturbance, or environmental, cultural, or economic disadvantage.
