Abstract:


This study aimed at identifying the educational needs of gifted students with learning disabilities in Aseer region in Saudi Arabia. The study used the descriptive survey approach and developed a questionnaire as a study instrument. The study sample was chosen randomly from the original study community, which included 50 teachers of learning disabilities in public schools in Aseer region. The results of the study showed statistically significant differences in the educational needs of students according to the viewpoint of their teachers which is attributable to the specialization (BA - MA and Ph.D. – others). The results also showed differences in determining the educational needs of gifted students with learning difficulties attributable to experience. There was an absence of differences in determining the educational needs of gifted students with learning difficulties attributable to the training programs.
