The study was conducted to know the status of Muslim immigrants' children with learning difficulties and importance of parents' involvement for the education whose children are with learning difficulties, and the factors responsible for the learning difficulties among immigrants' children. There were 81 immigrant children with learning difficulties who were identified for detail information. Eight parents of children with learning difficulties, and five directors of SPZs (Sonder Padagogik Zentrums) who were already involved with the education of children leaning difficulties were the part of the study. Following instruments were developed and used to achieve the objectives and test the hypothesis, such as: (1) questionnaire for children; (2) schedule interview for directors of SPZ; and (3) structured interview for parents. The results showed that the presence of male children was more than females. Parents, less interest, home environment, parents' qualification, age of children, and teachers' attitude with parents were powerful indicators which are responsible for learning difficulties among immigrants' children.
