John,

I was wondering the same thing.  Since no one has yet answered, here is 
what I found.

MLD
An acronym for Moderate Learning Difficulty.
Moderate Learning Difficulty
The term 'moderate learning difficulty' describes a child with global 
learning difficulties which are significant but not severe and which 
require the child to have some special educational provision. This is 
normally provided within the mainstream school by means of a statement.

PMLD
An acronym for Profound And Multiple Learning Difficulties.

SLD
An acronym for Severe Learning Difficulties.

This information is from a British website on Special Educational Needs 
Information <http://homepages.which.net/~darrel.ince/pages/gloss1.htm> 
whose glossary contains many definitions related to learning disorders..
