Rule Change for Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD)

Wisconsin’s rule for identifying students with specific learning disabilities (SLD) has changed. As of December 1, 2013, all initial SLD evaluations of public school students will now incorporate information from School District of Beloit Turner district interventions to make eligibility decisions.

Initial SLD evaluations will begin using information from a student’s response to intensive (RTI) data, scientific research-based, or evidence-based interventions when making special education eligibility decisions.
