ESE - Exceptional Student Education

Dana Brock


Frances Celis


  • Prior to 1997, IDEA did not specifically address general curriculum involvement of disabled students. The 1997 Amendments shifted the focus of the IDEA to one of improving teaching and learning, with a specific focus on the Individualized Education Program (IEP) as the primary tool for enhancing the child’s involvement and progress in the general curriculum.

  • The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act 2004 (IDEA) aligns IDEA closely to the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), helping to ensure equity, accountability and excellence in education for children with disabilities.

Sld specific learning disability 35 10
SLD - Specific Learning Disability 35.10%

  • Specific learning disabilities refers to a group of psychological processing disorders evidenced by significant difficulties in the acquisition and use of language, reading, writing, or mathematics.

  • Examples: Dysnomia, Auditory Processing, Visual Motor Integration, Dyslexia, Sensory Processing, Visual Integration Processing, etc.

Sld qualifications
SLD Qualifications

  • Documented evidence which indicates that general education interventions have been attempted and found to be ineffective.

  • Evidence of a disorder in one or more of the basic psychological processes required for learning.

  • Evidence of academic achievement which is significantly below the student’s level of intellectual


Gif gifted 22 53
GIF – Gifted22.53%

  • One who has superior intellectual development and is capable of high performance.

  • Qualifications:

    • Superior intellectual development as measured by an intelligence quotient of two standard deviations or more above the mean on an individually administered standardized test of intelligence.

    • Full Scale IQ = 130 +/-

Si speech impaired 11 43
SI – Speech Impaired 11.43%

  • An impairment in articulation is substitutions, distortions, or omissions of speech sounds which are not age appropriate.

  • An impairment in fluency is abnormal flow of speech which impairs rate and rhythm and may be accompanied by struggle behavior.

  • An impairment in voice is absence or abnormal production of voice quality, pitch, loudness, resonance,

    or duration.

Li language impaired 7 08

    • An inability to build or maintain satisfactory interpersonal relationships with peers and teachers.

  • An emotional handicap exists over an extended period of time, and in more than one situation.

  • The emotional handicap interferes with the student’s own learning, reading, arithmetic or writing skills, social-personal development, language development, or behavioral progress and control.

Emh educable mentally handicapped 6 09
EMH – Educable Mentally Handicapped6.09%

  • An educable mentally handicapped student is a student who is mildly impaired in intellectual and adaptive behavior and whose development reflects a reduced rate of learning. The measured intelligence of an educable mentally handicapped student generally falls between two and three standard deviations below the mean, and the assessed adaptive behavior falls below that of other students of the same age and socio-cultural group.
