Learning Disability

A child with a learning disability does not achieve adequately for the child’s age or meet state-approved grade-level standards in oral expression, listening comprehension, written expression, basic reading skill, reading fluency skills, reading comprehension, mathematics calculation or mathematics problem solving when provided appropriate instruction. Adequate achievement is indicated by performance on multiple measures such as in-class tests; grade average over time (e.g. six weeks, semester), norm or criterion-referenced tests; statewide assessments; or a process based on a child’s response to scientific research-based intervention, yet does not make progress upon provision of such interventions and exhibits a pattern of strengths and weaknesses in performance and/or achievement.
