dc.description.abstractLearned Helplessness (LH) puts learning disabled students at a disadvantage in the classroom. Further, learning disabled students are much more likely to exhibit symptoms of Learned Helplessness, including apathetic responses to difficult tasks or tasks in which they have previously failed. The results of the current study provide evidence that much of the difficulty LD students encounter in the classroom are the result of a lack of teacher understanding of both LD students’ actions and the LD themselves. Consequently there is a need for greater teacher training in both LD and LH and a greater emphasis on personal achievements and improvement for each student as opposed to providing all students with the same standards for achievement.en
