The area of study designated as Learning Disabilities is not new to educators; but the extent of this group of disorders in children has been realized only in the past decade. Due to the recent rubella epidemics, educators fear an increased number of children who will be both deaf and learning disabled. This is a vital area of concern. Much more research is needed by science, medicine, psychology, and education into this little understood and often confusing discipline. These professions must find a common ground from which to begin, a means of diagnosis, and a program of remediation which is tailored to the needs of the individual child.
