Abstract: For the purpose of this digest, students with learning difficulties are defined as students who have significant difficulties in acquiring literacy and numeracy skills but excluding students who have an intellectual, physical or sensory impairment or whose learning difficulty is due to social cultural or environmental factors. Thus the group of students that are the subject of this digest includes (but is not limited to) those with learning disabilities, dyslexia, Attention Deficit Disorder/ Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and language and communication difficulties. Typically these students have memory and organisation problems and have failed to make satisfactory progress with the regular classroom curriculum.
