McCrorie (2006) as cited in London Deanery (2012)[online] summarizes some of the problems . students cannot be encouraged to talk except with difficulty students do not prepare for the sessions one student dominates or blocks the discussion the students want the answers not the questions

Altan & Trombly (2001) says  „Creating a learner-centered classroom is a response to the problem created when a student’s learning style differs from the teacher’s teaching style.  The way a teacher presents subject matter may conflict with students‟ ideas about learning, thus resulting in no learning.  Therefore, it is the teacher‟s duty to respect individual learner differences and to assist the students in discovering their own learning processes and preferences.  It requires putting students at the center of classroom organization and respecting their needs, strategies, and styles’.

TRECC [2013] online states „Children with special needs deserve the same free and appropriate education that all children receive. Difficult yet rewarding [eg. Taare Zameen Par] Children with special needs learn best when they are touching and manipulating objects This kinesthetic movement makes their brains react and see things in a different light.
