Students with Learning Disabilities (LD) represent the largest category of those receiving special education services in the United States, and when these students receive the types of services, accommodations and supports they need, they can be very successful. This intermediate level continuing education course, developed using information from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, provides information about what learning disabilities are and the impact they have on the lives of children during the school-age years.
