Physically Impaired (PI) is a low incidence disability area that is represented by approximately 1% of all students in Minnesota receiving special education services. PI is defined as a medically diagnosed, chronic physical impairment - either congenital or acquired - that may adversely affect physical or academic functioning and result in the need for special education and related services (MN Rule 3525.1337)
P/HD Licensure & Tuition Support
In Minnesota, teachers licensed in the area of Physical/Health Disabilities (P/HD) provide consultation and services to students who qualify under the PI category. A professional manual and other resources can be found on the PI Resources page.
Educators pursuing Physical/Health Disabilities licensure can apply by completing the tuition support application.
