Nationwide, approximately 43 percent of students who receive special education services are identified as having a specific learning disability. The new federal special education regulations that went into effect October 13, 2006 included important changes to the way students with learning disabilities are identified as eligible to receive special education services under IDEA 2004. This 90 minute Webinar presentation explains these changes and provides information about related topics like responsiveness-to-intervention (RTI) and state education standards. The presentation also provides tips and advocacy strategies.
