The case study addresses all aspects of the education of a 6th grade elementary school student who had been diagnosed with a learning disability (LD) at a very young age. In order to gather comprehensive information about the unique educational needs, challenges, issues, daily social and academic experiences of the target LD student, multiple interviews were conducted with the student, his parent, the special education teacher, and an advocacy organization that represents and provides services for individuals with learning disabilities. Descriptions of an observation of the annual case conference for the 6th grade student with LD are also discussed.
