Changes to names of Special Education Licenses

Due to changes to the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the names of some special education licenses have changed effective July 1, 2016:
  • Cognitive Disabilities changed to Intellectual Disabilities
  • Emotional Disturbance changed to Emotional Behavior Disabilities
  • Learning Disabilities changed to Specific Learning Disabilities
These changes affect not only future licenses to be issued but also all existing licenses as well.
