This program prepares students to be Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultants (LDT-Cs). This is an endorsement on a teaching certificate and three years of teaching is required to be eligible for the LDT-C certification. LDT-Cs are members of Child Study Teams which are responsible for the assessment, placement, IEP (Individualized Educational Program) development, and program monitoring of students referred to or eligible for special education services. An essential component of the LDT-C role is to provide consultation and in-service training for teachers regarding a student's educational program.
The program is approved by the Council for Exceptional Children and the New Jersey Department of Education.
Credentials are processed as soon as they are received. These programs do not have a specific deadline, however the Office of Graduate Admissions & Support Services recommends that students submit their credentials as far in advance as possible from the semester they plan to begin their studies to ensure a timely review of their application.
