The results of the study, which Ms. Al Ateeq presented as part of the requirements to get admitted with the Master’s degree from AGU in learning difficulties, showed that the prevalence of the difficulty of acknowledging words among the sampled students in Kuwait was 94 per cent.

Based on the results, Ms. Al Ateeq recommended that the books of the Arabic language subject for the third and fifth grades should be improved, especially that the reading difficulties rates has reached 80 per cent in schools.

The researcher additionally recommended the construction of special individual classrooms in cooperation with the Ministry of Education to implement such strategies.
