A learning disabled student is a child who has been identified through the assessment process. The criteria for this program are mandated by the State of Minnesota. It includes severe discrepancy between academic performance and ability, severe class underachievement and a processing delay.
Each student is serviced based on his/her individual needs. Some students require individual or small group instruction to remediate the academic skills that their peers have already mastered.
