This program prepares teachers to serve as learning disabilities teacher-consultants (LDT-C) in the public school systems (K-12). The LDT-C works as an assessment specialist and a member of the Public Personnel Services team. Applicants are required to have earned a master's degree, a New Jersey standard instructional certificate, and have three years of full-time classroom teaching experience. The program includes instruction in the assessment of academic achievement of students referred for learning disabilities evaluation. Participants will also be prepared to interpret patterns found in testing, to devise informal measures to pinpoint cognitive difficulties, and to design interventions to help students compensate for academic and behavioral deficiencies.
