Applying to college with learning disability, with a question here?

A college that I'm applying to requires two letters of recommendation by professionals in the field of learning disabilities.

Now, who would these ''professionals in the field of learning disabilities'' be in my current, public high school? The special education teachers? The author of my IEP? Who should I go to for these? Thanks.

    Why is the college requiring this? Did you inform them either via your essay or supplementary material that you have a learning disability? Colleges typically only require a recent re-evaluation if you are seeking accommodations.

    Who would they be in your high school? The school psychologist and a special education teacher would be my recommendations.

    Try the doctor that diagnosed you with the disability, any of the skills/special education teacher's you've had, a school head of Special Education... You get the idea.
