Journal on Educational Psychology, v2 n3 p21-25 Nov 2008-Jan 2009
In classrooms, students differ in terms of their academic progress. Most of them achieve high and at the same time some of the students have some learning problems. One of the major reasons for learning problems is learning disabilities. Learning disabilities refers to a variety of disorders that affect the acquisition, retention, understanding, organization or use of verbal and/or non-verbal information. The problem of learning disability is growing severely among the school children. The educationist, professionals and psychologists suggest some principles and methods to reduce the rate of learning disabled students. Most of them opined that, the alternative teaching and learning methods are the only means to reduce the learning disability. In view of this different methods of teaching and learning have been recommended for learning disabled. However, the drawback is that these methods deviate from the traditional set up of classroom where the students with learning disabilities are treated separately. Multiple Intelligences provides multiple ways to learn. Hence in the present article, the authors feel that Multiple Intelligence activity based teaching and learning may overcome this drawback and it will be one of the best alternative means for learning disabled in the traditional classroom itself.
