Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultants work in collaboration with other members of a child study team to determine eligibility for special services. LDT-Cs also consult with parents, teachers, and other school personnel to provide research-based instructional strategies to assist pupils struggling academically.

Graduates of the Master of Arts in Learning Disabilities Program at Rowan University earn the Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultants certificate (an Educational Services credential) concomitantly with the Master of Arts in Learning Disabilities degree. However, applicants who have earned a Masters degree in learning disabilities from another institution or a masters degree in a related field (e.g., special education or reading) may apply to the Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultant (LDT-C) certificate-only program.

This program meets all State of New Jersey requirements for the LDT-C certificate. It also received national recognition for accreditation through CEC for educational diagnosticians.

The Program Advisor and Program Coordinator will review an applicant's graduate transcripts to determine which, if any, courses fulfill existing requirements to earn the LDT-C certificate.
