Certificate of Achievement | Online
This program sets the foundation for study in the area of learning disabilities with a focus on the relevant and varied definitions of learning disabilities, and explores the types of learning disabilities and the means of assessing learning disabilities. Students will review and reflect on ethical practices and legal responsibilities of educational bodies for providing and supporting access to accommodations, special funding, and services. Students will have the opportunity to explore how psycho-educational reports and mental health accommodations are used to create learning plans for academic settings. Students will also have the opportunity to consider how other disorders; including ADHD, ASD, NVLD, addictions, and mental health disorders, impact learning. Legal foundations and professional standards as they pertain to learning disabilities will also be explored. This program allows students to participate in rich discussions with professionals in the field, and network with an online community.
