Colleen: Our Adult LD child hasn’t been able to pass the Illinois state exam to allow him to student teach, which would allow him to finish his special Ed graduate program, in teaching. He’s taken it 3 times and is discouraged. Does anyone know if these kinds of certification exams can be modified or can thy be waived? His GPA is 3.9, so clearly he is able to do the work…it is the ‘test’, we suspect. Any input appreciated.
I would check with the Illinois state exam office. Perhaps they have alternative testing although it may be minimal and of no help but you could always ask.
