They were further tested on Adjustment inventory for school studies of A.K.P. Sinha and R.P. Singh and Self concept questionnaire of Dr. Raj Kumar Saraswat. Children with learning disability obtained significantly low score in self-concept and adjustment when compared to normal children. The result indicates a significant relationship between self concept and adjustment. In General, the results indicated that the better adjustment people have, the more ability they will make progress in their life. . However, the differences between the groups were found to be low suggesting that suitable remedial/ intervention programmes may bring the children with difficulty on par with normal children. A child with Learning Disability appears to exhibit emotional problems due to adjustment difficulties resulting from academic failure. Sometimes kids have trouble expressing their feelings, calming themselves down, and reading nonverbal cues, which can lead to difficulty in the classroom and with their peers. Students with undetected learning disabilities might demonstrate undesirable behaviour for a variety of reasons. They might feel angry, sad, lonely, frustrated, or hopeless as a result of focusing on their difficulties. Special needs students are deprived of a suitable education when they are taught at a mismatched level with students how are significantly above their level. Children with learning disabilities may have problems with Academics, social, home and emotional aspects. These problems they may over come through attending special education classes and parental attention. There is a need for special education for children with learning disability and conduct awareness programmes regarding learning disability and their common problems.
