These students may have 1 or more learning goals. Normally, these students primarily have learning disabilities. Iowa does not label students based on a diagnosis. All students are labeled EI (Eligible Individual). There are numerous types of learning disabilities. Level 2 The federal government pays the school based on a students level.
