Guidance for the Comprehensive Evaluation of Specific Learning Disabilities

This guidance document serves as a resource for local education agencies (LEAs) and Multidisciplinary Teams (MDTs) as they work collaboratively to evaluate students suspected of having a Specific Learning Disability (SLD), including dyslexia and dysgraphia. An overview of relevant regulations, educational disability condition elements, best practices, and special considerations related to the identification of an SLD is provided. This resource is best used in conjunction with the TEA Technical Assistance Guide: Child Find & Evaluation.
