Learning Diversity in the Chinese Classroom

This chapter discusses the learning difficulties of Chinese students in regular classroom contexts. Since disabilities in the subject areas of reading and mathematics influence all areas of school achievement, and are often experienced by students with learning disabilities, these two areas are the chief focus of discussion. In addition to elucidating various issues concerning the definition of learning disabilities, some pertinent assessment approaches and specific strategies for supporting students with learning disabilities to acquire reading and mathematical skills are expounded.

Keywords:   Learning difficulties, Learning disabilities, Disabilities, Reading, Mathematics, Chinese students
