NJCLD – Guiding Principles for Serving Students with LD During and After the Pandemic

November 2017

The CLD Liaison Co-chairs announce the most recent paper of the National Joint Committee on Learning Disabilities (NJCLD) is entitled “Learning Disabilities and Achieving High Quality Education Standards.” Especially in this era of accountability, it is important for students with LD to achieve high quality education standards (HQES). Concerted efforts on the part of educators—supports, strategies, professional development—are required for students with LD to meet rigorous education standards. With appropriate support and individualized instruction, as well as strong collaboration among education professionals, comes a genuine opportunity for students with LD to master HQES and enhance their college and career readiness. The NJCLD paper highlights several critical areas necessary if students with LD are to achieve HQES.
