• To develop diagnostic test to study the nature of LD
in reading skills in English language.
• To evolve suitable strategies to over come the
reading disorders as well as computation skill in
• To study the effects of the evolved strategies in
eliminating reading disorders and computation/skill
in Arithmetic for students of class-IV and among
the students of class-V in English.
SCOPE OF THE STUDY
• Reading disorders in pronunciation, relating to
incorrect speech, no omission of certain letters.
• No use of pause, intonation disorder in Spelling.
• Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and
• Arranging number in ascending and descending
• Place value.
The sample consisted of 10 students from
class IV Math and 8 students from class V
English identified with such deficiencies
from the Govt Primary School of Old
Faridabad were selected purposively to
conduct the experiment.

As seen ding
Diagnostic tests should be meticulously designed.
The specific learning problems are to be identified and strategies
are to be applied accordingly.
Besides STAD, TGT, TAI and PTA (Peer Tutoring) other
techniques may be developed for eliminating the learning
disability of the learners.
The same exercise should continue till the learning disabilities are
eliminated to Zero level.
If SSA functionaries adopt such techniques and strategies for the
disadvantaged group and for learning disabled children in a global
way then we can achieve certain levels of quality education.
Various remedial packages should be developed centrally and/or
through SSA functionaries (BRCs, CRCs, DIET) and State level
for the disadvantaged group.
Teacher educators, Teacher trainers and school teachers should be
trained time to time related to the various types of innovative
strategies and development of the remedial packages for the
effectiveness of classroom teaching.
