This research study was carried out properly to explore strategies of improving English amongst learners with specific learning difficulty (S.L.D) in regular primary schools, Central zone, Mumias District. The researcher intended to find out the behavior characteristics that can be shown by a learner with reading difficulty , teaching methods , teaching and learning activities , teaching and learning resources and finally support services that can be offered to those learners. The research was intensively and comprehensively carried out using survey and quantitative approach. Questionnaires were used as tools of data collection. The data was analyzed and interpreted using tables , pie charts and bar graphs. From the findings , it was realized that learners with SLD in reading can be identified by behaviour outlook . Also they perform poorly due to lack of varied teaching methods. A part from that, the mostly used teaching and learning activities was teacher centered. Most classes had no learning centers. Lastly learners did not get adequate support services. Hence teachers of English can identify learners with reading difficulty by behaviour shown . Also, should vary teaching methods and make child centered teaching and learning activities. There is also need for learning centers and other learning resources to be made in use , peers, the community and teachers need to be enlightened on how they can offer support services to these learners.
