educational opportunity must be the birthright to every citizen .

Accordingly , to achieve equal opportunities and quality education for all , Special Education Teacher with Learning Disabilities , has applied to use the i-THINK program to special education students with learning disabilities in teaching and learning activities . Therefore , Special Education students with learning disabilities will not be left behind and will be able to engage with other mainstream students .
