Learning disability refers to a range of conditions that cause considerable difficulties in learning and using abilities such as listening, speaking, reading, writing, thinking, or mathematics. A learning disability, on the other hand, is frequently attached with other incapacitating conditions (social and emotional disturbance, sensory impairment). The studys population comprises of all students in the eighth and ninth grades from government and private schools in the Salem district. A standardized self-administered open and closed ended questionnaire from Bhargava and Bhardwajs learning disability battery was employed. After data analysis, results revealed a significant difference between girls and boys students in their learning disabilities. Students categories also play a significant role in their Dyscalculia and Dyslexia learning disabilities. The mean difference is favor of boys. Hence, it can be inferred that boys possess lower dyscalculia when compared to girls. Gender did not make any significant difference in Dysgraphia, a learning disability. The types of high school students differed significantly in their categories of learning disabilities (Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Dyslexia). At the same time, severe learning disabilities are found in CBSE school students
