Abstract


This present investigation has aimed to identify the achievement in reading and mathematical skill of the students in the whole educational process. The present investigation is a fruitful one for the learning community for the betterment of educational process in their entire life. Metacognitive strategies play a vital role for the student’s academic achievement in reading and mathematical calculations.  Learning disabilities refers to significant learning problems in an academic area. It describes a group of disorders characterized by inadequate development of specific academic, language (Reading  , writing) and  mathematics. Students  who are not able to read and write and comprehend mathematics can be called learning disabled children.
