This training module has been created to assist you in qualifying for acceptance into the Learning Disabilities Eligibility & Services Model training. As you may be aware, 15 upper division or graduate level units of course work in learning disabilities are required to be accepted into the training and ultimately to be qualified to determine eligibility for learning disability services in the California Community Colleges DSPS programs.
Your participation in, and completion of, this training module will count in lieu of 3 of the LD units required for acceptance to the LDESM training. This course constitutes approximately 48 hours of instruction and assumes that the linked readings, exercises, and quizzes are completed. The content flow of this 11-chapter module was designed to be completed sequentially, though you will find that some material presented early in the module will be explained in more detail in later chapters.
It is hoped that this training is found useful and will assist you in your goal of serving individuals with disabilities in the California Community College System. Your desire to complete the Learning Disabilities Eligibility and Services Model training is applauded.
