Definition

A student with a specific learning disability is defined as a disorder in one or more of the basic learning processes involved in: understanding or in using language, spoken or written, that may manifest in significant difficulties affecting the ability to listen, speak, read, write, spell, or do mathematics.


Associated conditions may include, but are not limited to, dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, or developmental aphasia.


A specific learning disability does not include learning problems that are primarily the result of a visual, hearing, motor, intellectual, or emotional/behavioral disability, limited English proficiency, or environmental, cultural, or economic factors.
