While most children are able to learn at a normal level and pace, some have cognitive impairments that make learning difficult. Cognitive impairments are intellectual disabilities that are caused by brain abnormalities, genetics, injuries or diseases. Some cases are present at birth, while others develop over time. These intellectual disabilities can affect a child in many ways. They may have trouble not only learning new things, but also communicating, walking, socializing and performing daily tasks such as eating and dressing.
In order to teach children with cognitive impairments, prospective Michigan educators must pass MTTC Cognitive Impairment Exam. You are given two hours and 30 minutes (computer-based test) or four hours and 30 minutes (paper-based test) to complete the MTTC Cognitive Impairment Test. There will be 100 multiple-choice questions. You will need a score of 220 or higher to pass.
