Vermont's Procedures for the Identification of Children with Specific Learning Disabilities.
Allen-Malley, Garet; Eklund, Judy
The booklet outlines Vermont's procedures for identifying learning disabled (LD) students. Following an introduction and a review of definitions of LD, information is presented on the pre-referral process (including the composition and function of the building based support team and procedures for data collection). The eligibility process is addressed in terms of ability and achievement assessment, exclusionary considerations, factors in the decision making process, and the 3 year re-evaluation. A final section focuses on alternatives for ineligible, low achieving children. Among appended information is a learner characteristics checklist. (CL)
