Learning Disabilities Criteria
The Crestwood School District is subscribing to the Wayne County approach to determining a student with a specific learning disability.

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) of 2004 included important changes in the approaches schools use to determine specific learning disabilities

Based on current research, Wayne county schools are using new methods of assessment and instruction to prevent learning deficits. When analyzing a student's performance and achievement for patters of strength and weakness, the consistencies among cognitive and academic skills are used to identify specific learning disabilities.
