Metro Specific Learning Disability (SLD) Project

Metro ECSU, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE), provides support and assistance to address metro district priorities related to appropriate identification and instruction of students with Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD). This project is linked to the state SLD Technical Manual content and the four SLD Training modules.  This Project also coordinates with MDE and other state regions to help districts implement guidance from the new manual as well as other state initiatives involving students with mild disabilities.

Project Components:

Networking opportunities are provided for these training teams to work with and share expertise with other metro districts, state regions, other state trainers and institutions of higher education. These trainers also have access to additional training opportunities and materials. These metro area trainers are our “Metro SLD Leadership Team”.
