SURNAME1NameCourse InstructorCourse NameDateIntroductionSpecific learning disability is a condition that many students face especially if they are notreaching the required standard grades. It is mainly faced by students who are going through acultural or language disability. As parents and the school administration, it is important tounderstand the students current situation in order to come up with ways to help them.Understanding this will help come up with special education curriculum that will assist thestudent and therefore they get a chance to have a good education. The main students who gothrough this problem are foreign students who are not from a certain country and therefore lackthe linguistic knowledge (Drame, 26-32).They tend to also be from different cultures and therefore when they reach a certain countrythey experience culture shock. It is due to difficulty in adapting to the new environments. Youngstudents find it easier to adapt to a new environment than older students, which is why it isparamount to understand and evaluate them. A proper understanding of these students willdetermine whether they have specific learn disability. There are guiding factors that they use tohelp identify if a student has the specific learning disability. The factors include; the homelanguage survey, determination of student to learn English, duration of a student in a country,characteristics of students native culture and cognitive evaluation (Drame, 26-32).
