3. Why is it important to be able to identify the slow learners in a class as opposed to those children with specific learning disabilities?

4. To ensure that the level of service and support provided to that child is markedly improved The learning needs of these two groups are quite different, so it is important to make correct identification for programming needs

5. Characteristics Slow Learner Developmental May have immature language patterns or speech problems

6. Social poor judgement, immature social behaviour, prefers company of younger children

7. Personal frustration aggression anxiety

8. Academic May show proficiency with particular tasks rather than subject areas, poor memory, difficulties understanding several steps in a task

9. Learning needs to have new information linked to old, difficulties transferring information learned in one situation to other situations

10. Learning Disabled Academic - reading confuses similar words and letters loses place repeats words does not read fluently persists in using fingers to follow along, does not like to read

11. Academic - spelling uses incorrect order of letters in words had difficulty associating correct sound with appropriate letter reverses letters and words

12. Academic - maths had difficulty associating number with symbol cannot remember number facts confuses columns and spacing has difficulty comprehending maths concepts

13. Physical perceptual motor difficulties visual perception difficulties poor visual decoding general co-ordination deficits poor auditory memory attention deficit mixed dominance

14. Psychological emotional instability (violent reactions) difficulty learning by ordinary methods low social acceptance low self concept/self esteem general disorganisation

15. Social/Emotional/Behavioural hyperactivity (gross, noisy, constant movements) hypoactivity (quiet, nervous, fidgety) impulsivity poor concentration span low frustration tolerance emotional liability seem paradoxical
