This project presented the social and emotional impact of a learning disability among middle school aged children as compared to typical learners. A review of literature summarized the comparison of the social/emotional needs of typical middle school learners to students with learning disabilities. Additionally, the review of literature explored current interventions for students with a learning disability. Findings suggest that students with a learning disability have higher rates of anxiety, depression, high-school drop-out, and increased rates of suicide and current intervention models are not meeting the unique needs among students with a learning disability. As a proposed intervention to support students with a learning difference, this project includes a comprehensive outline of an 8-week social/emotional/and psychoeducational group aimed to provide students with a learning difference the opportunity to uncover mistaken beliefs about who they are as a learner and refine their self-concept in positive ways.
