ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the challenges in managing specific learning disability (SpLD) in Indian children. He stresses that SpLD is a group of neurodevelopmental disorders which manifest in childhood as persistent difficulties in learning which include dyslexia, dysgrahia and dyscalculia. He suggests that children with SpLD have poor performance in school, therefore, they need special attention by offering remedial or special education designed to address their deficiency in learning.
