Abstract:
The behavioral characteristics of slow learners are symptoms of conditions or some factors present either within the child or outside the child. Slow learning is caused by a variety of factors such as: (i) Low intellectual abilities such as subnormal intelligence. (ii) Personal factors such as long illness, long absence from school, undetected physical defects, poor cognitive entry characteristics. Slow learners are to be identified by employing various procedures and using various Information and Communication Technology (ICT) tools and techniques. Positive reinforcement technique should be used as much as possible. The ICT recommendations are useful for the teacher.
