The present study was undertaken in an attempt to identify the behavioral problems among learning disabled children. The sample consisted of 450 (age 6-8 years) learning disabled children from various centers. The Aberrant behavior checklist was administered to the parents of the children uniformly. Data were analyzed by using analysis of variance. Results revealed that place of residence and income have had a significant impact on the behavioral problems specifically lethargy and inappropriate speech. Results are discussed in the light of previous findings and implications for the learning-disabled children and their parents.
