Surveys on Meeting the Needs of Students with Learning Disabilities

: Consistent with the New York State Education Departmentís (NYSEDís) commitment to promote high-quality, evidence-based instruction for all students, the Office of Special Education has developed surveys for administrators, educators/service providers/school personnel, and families on meeting the needs of students with learning disabilities resulting from dyslexia, dysgraphia, and dyscalculia in New York State. Results of the surveys will be used to inform guidance development related to students with specific learning disabilities and other Department initiatives including the NYSEDís State Systemic Improvement Plan, which is a multi-year, achievable plan that is designed to increase the capacity of school districts to implement, scale-up, and sustain evidence-based practices to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.
