Abstract:


The study aimed to identify the attitudes of teacher of students with learning disabilities towards distance education in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. The study used the descriptive and analytical method, and applied the study to a sample consisting of (32) teachers in Aseer region. The study used a questionnaire as an instrument of the study. The questionnaire consisted of (18) statements covering two main dimensions, the first included the basic data of the sample, and the second included the questionnaire phrases that were judged and verified the psychometric properties. The findings showed that teachers are keen to use the benefits of distance education. However, there was a lack of interdependence of relationships between students as a result of the lack of interaction between them during the distance education period in light of the Corona pandemic. Teaching using distance education is very stressful in the absence of the necessary activities that attract the attention of the student with learning disabilities. The degree of achievement of students is less and this is normal compared to the teaching in the presence of teachers in schools, which is more interactive and the acquisition of information.
