Abstract
The study aims to address struggles associated with individuals experiencing Specific Learning Disorder that includes Dyslexia, Dysgraphia, and Dyscalculia. The study comprises multiple phases; an initial need analysis through interviews followed by an adaptation of an intervention model and further testing of the efficacy of the adapted model on individuals with SLD. The first phase was completed using thematic analysis and adaptation of intervention based on the adaptation framework of Stirman, The Frame.

After adaptation, the model is applied to individuals with SLD with the aim to reduce symptoms of SLD in a few sessions. The reduction of symptoms in learning and associated problems are to be noted through two instruments, LDES and SDQ.

Experimental Details

Interventions

Intervention(s)
The study is divided into many steps, starting with a need analysis through interviews, then adapting an intervention model, and finally testing the effectiveness of the modified model on people with SLD. Thematic analysis and intervention modification based on Stirman's ''The Frame'' adaption framework was used to finish the first phase. After adaption, the model is used with people who have SLD in an effort to lessen SLD symptoms in a few sessions. Through the use of two instruments, the LDES and SDQ, it is possible to track the improvement of learning symptoms and related issues.

Experimental Design

Experimental Design
True Experimental design is used in this study where using a scale the severity of SLD will be identified followed by the intervention model that is expected to reduce the severity of the problem
