This paper analyzes the assessment of special children when their problems are realized in the mainstream classroom. The paper looks a case study of Lee, a boy who displays reading problems, and discusses the need to rule out factors such as fatigue or poor vision. The paper then identifies certain specific weaknesses in reading skills and how they can be due to sensory overload caused by bright lights, environmental distortions and print distortions.

From the Paper:

"In the day-to-day routine of a classroom there is almost always a variation in the way that children display their skills in reading, writing, etc. This is because of the fact that every individual is built differently, and each one displays varying levels of intelligence. It is these varying levels of intelligence exhibited in reading and writing skills that educationalists look out for.
"When a child displays ability or disability that stands out from the average level in the class the teacher in charge must realize the problem and take action according to the need. When students display a disability in their learning they require special attention, which must be provided in a manner that is different. The duties of the Special Education comprise detecting the unusual performances in individuals. According to the problems detected they set to work on them devising methods of correcting the problems so that every individual can keep up with the pace of the whole class. The role of the Special Education teacher is exposed in the following case of Lee. Lee is apparently a normal child but has recently been displaying deviant behavior in the mainstream classroom. The class teacher presents a case of a learning disability and to realize the actual problem she has approached a qualified special education teacher."
