LEARNING DISABILITIES SUB-SPECIALTY DESIGNATION
The Learning Disabilities (+LD) sub-specialty designation is a secondary specialty and can be earned only by IECA members who have the School (S), College (C), Graduate School (G), or Therapeutic (T) Designations. Learning Disabilities is not a stand-alone specialty.
IECA members who wish to include Learning Disabilities in their IECA Membership Directory listing are required to complete this application.
Please note that the required expertise to work with LD students may be acquired at any time after admission into IECA and the “+LD” listing will be added when appropriate.
Learning Disabilities consulting includes advising clients on the following different and distinct environments:
- Schools/colleges whose students all have documented learning disabilities
- Schools/colleges that have some students with documented learning disabilities, and have both LD trained staff and educational programs for students who need those services.
- Schools/colleges that have some students with documented learning disabilities, and have support services for them such as course selection, time management, support groups, guidance and counseling.
- Post-secondary transition programs for students who have learning disabilities and may offer career exploration, interviewing skills, resume writing, internships, entry level job placement, independent living, and education and training on or off site.
