The main focus of this study is a particular group of students who have learning difficulties although they are not mentally
disabled, do not have emotional disorders, are not educationally neglected, and have normal vision, hearing and speech. The only
explanation for their learning difficulties is the presence of Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD).
The educational practices, especially in our region, show lack of concern for these students. Within our regular schools, students
with SLD are rarely correctly identified, much less receive adequate intervention.
Therefore, the purpose of this study is to give a definition of SLD and to emphasize the importance of early identification of
students with such difficulties. Furthermore, it will give a description of effective teaching methods designed to match their
specific needs which will provide successful progression in their education and in the outside world. These studies have very
important practical implications (primarily educational) and they are a research challenge that deserves attention.
