Abstract

This paper examines the issue of students with learning disabilities in K-12 cyber schools in the state of Pennsylvania. This seldom discussed group makes up over 25% of the student population in some cyber schools. These learners face additional sets of challenges when learning through online methods. In the 2008/2009 school year, there were nearly 2700 students classified with a learning disability in Pennsylvania cyber schools, yet little previous research or literature discusses them.
