The article suggests ways on how teachers can deal with students with learning disabilities. A teacher who is willing to make some changes for a child with problems can mean much to the child by helping him to help himself. Special adaptations of educational devices as well as learning materials can be helpful. Several suggestions regarding physical environment in the classroom is discussed. Many of the suggestions would be unnecessary for some children, but with selective adaptations, the child might be able to increase his learning skills.
