Abstract: 

It appears that children with learning disabilities receive and process information in different ways from normal children due to having brain dysfunctions. To test this hypothesis, the current study was conducted in order to compare the pattern of sensory information processing between children with learning disability and normal children. The three groups with learning disability (15 persons with dyslexia/ dysgraphia, 15 persons with dyscalculia, 15 persons with mixed disorder), who were selected randomly from the student's of the learning disability centers of Urumia educational office, and one 15 persons random group of normal students, participated in the one cross-sectional study. Utilizing structured clinical interview for confirmation or rejection of labeled diagnose, the mothers of them were asked to respond to Short Sensory Profile. The gathered data analyzed by one way ANOVA, MANOVA and LSD post hog tests. Results showed that there is significant difference between groups' means in components of the tactile sensitivity, sensation seeking, auditory filtering, visual/ auditory sensitivity and total score of the sensory profile, but there are not any significant difference between the groups in the components of smell/ taste sensitivity, energy level and movement sensitivity.
These results refer to the existence of deficits in the processing of the tactile, visual, auditory information, sensation seeking and ability to filter auditory information in the children's with learning disability.
