A child whom we call a slow learner is not always in need of special education. What needs to be understood is such a child is likely to need some extra time and help in regular class room. He is capable by learning like an average child. A slow learner is one who learn at a slower than average rate. Then we have to advise educational programs for slow learners. Slow learner work best with a changeful designed step. Slow learners can learn if instruction is approached changefully. The ways in this reign are tutoring remedial instruction.  This paper is dealing with slow learners and their educational programs.
