The present investigation was an attempt to explore the underlying construct of cognitive processing and self-perception of learning disabilities in elementary inclusive school children. A cognitive assessment test battery and self-perception of disabilities inventory was developed by the investigator and administered to 100 elementary sixth and seventh graders of Kerala, India. Varimax rotated exploratory factor analysis yielded four factors in cognitive processing and self-perception. It was concluded that these four dimensions could explain the empirical evidence to support the multidimensionality of cognitive processing as suggested by Das and his Colleagues (1994b) in PASS theory of cognitive processing. Further there emerged four factors in self-perception of learning disabilities among the elementary inclusive school children, which resembled the factors in cognitive processing.
