Teachers have great influence on learner's development. The role of the teacher is to manipulate the environment in order to facilitate earning while at the same time considering learner's diversities. What the teacher does therefore results in what is learnt. This means that the teacher's attitudes towards his/her learner greatly affect the learning of pupils with special needs 11 Students with learning disabilities have for a long time been denied adequate opportunities to practice and develop to their maximum potentials. For a long time such learners have been subjected to negative labeling, such as stupid, idiot, thickly slow learners and low achievers, by their teachers.
