Abstract


Education is a behavior forming activity, while permanent change in the behavior of a person is known as learning It is gained by the senses (listening, reading, watching and doing etc.). The more the senses are used during the process of acquiring knowledge, the easier it will be to comprehend. There are a number of children in classrooms with normal body and appearance but with certain hidden disabilities, which could not disfigure or leave visible signs while they study in the class along with other normal  students. Present  study  attempts  to identify students  with  learning  disabilities  and evaluate their behavior with school teachers and classmates along with their habits. A sample of 14 private schools of Qasimabad, A tlaka of Hyderabad, Pakistan was selected as sample of study. Two tools, one for identification of LD students and second for evaluating their behavior and habits were used. It was found that students with LD remain mostly silent but become easily hyper. Mostly they do not take part in games. Keeping in view the findings suggestions were given for schools, teachers and parents.
