Survey of Certification Requirements for Teachers of Children with Learning Disabilities.
Schwartz, Lita Linzer
The results of a survey of certification requirements for teachers of children with learning disabilities is reported in two parts: (1) responses from 45 state and 9 provincial departments of public instruction in the United States and Canada and (2) responses from 26 colleges and universities. The states are listed alphabetically, and information is summarized and, when appropriate, is directly quoted along with the responding source. The programs for children with learning disabilities, which varied greatly from state to state, are classified under a variety of categories in the different states, including learning disabilities, mentally retarded, emotionally disturbed/socially maladjusted, orthopedically handicapped, multiple disabilities/otherwise handicapped, and speech pathology/deaf. Of the 55 states and provinces responding, 34 states (62 percent) reported certification or endorsement requirements in the above areas. From the state surveys, requests for course descriptions were made to those colleges and universities mentioned, and their programs are summarized alphabetically according to college within the state.
