The Indicators of Evaluate Children with Mathematics Learning Disabilities in Khartoum State-Sudan

Authors(1) :-Eldood Yousif Eldood Ahmed

This study was conducted during (2014- 2015) in special educational center in Khartoum state, Sudan. The study aimed to evaluate children with mathematics learning disabilities. Researcher used descriptive methods, applied evaluating children with mathematics learning disabilities questionnaire, and was designed by researcher. The community of this study consisted teachers of learning disabilities (53) teachers. Sample was chosen randomly included (22) teachers, including (8) mails and (14) females. Researcher used statistical package for social sciences (SPSS) depends on T-test for one sample, Pearson correlation coefficient. the results are as following: The indicators of evaluate children with mathematics learning disabilities is positive, the level of visual perception disorder among children with mathematics learning disabilities, is significant, the level of visual discrimination disorder among children with mathematics learning disabilities , is significant and the level of auditory processing disorder among children with mathematics learning disabilities , is significant.
