ABSTRACT
This article discusses problems special education teachers may have in presenting social studies to their pupils. A student's poor reading ability, deficient memory, visual-spatial disturbances, and lack of understanding of abstract ideas are likely to interfere greatly with learning. Techniques and ideas for coping with these problems are suggested.
