Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant Certification

Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultants (LDTC) work in collaboration with other members of a child study team to determine eligibility for special services. LDTCs also consult with parents, teachers, and other school personnel to provide research-based instructional strategies to assist pupils who are struggling academically. Applicants who have earned a master’s degree in Learning Disabilities from another institution, or a master’s degree in a related field (e.g., Special Education or Reading), may apply to the Learning Disabilities Teacher Consultant (LDTC) certification program.Leaning Disabilities teacher Consultant
