Abstract

This study identified the problems faced by English language teachers in teaching students with learning disabilities. The study developed a questionnaire to collect data, which was administered to a sample of (122) male and female teachers in public schools working with students with LDs. The results of the study showed teachers suffer from several problems while teaching students with LDS to a moderate degree. The findings revealed the presence of significant differences between the responses of the study sample about the problems faced by the teacher in teaching students with LDs due to the gender variable. The findings also showed significant differences between the responses of the study sample about the problems faced by the teacher in teaching students with LDs due to the variable years of experience.
