dc.description.abstract This study examines how stakeholders perceive the effectiveness of the Learning Support Unit for learning disabled students throughout their general education within School X. The effectiveness of the program was studied by examining the school's mission statement, and to what extent the Learning Support Unit objective was aligned with it. The study focuses on leadership and academic excellence, home school connections, and provision for a healthy secure learning environment. Teachers, administrators and parents were interviewed, and given questionnaires that reflected how academic excellence and leadership were achieved, interviews were conducted to gain data on students' learning environment and with parents in relation to the home school connection. After the investigation there were several recommendations made. First that communication and professional development follow systems set up by all parties of the LSU, secondly that ongoing updates and recommendations be given to parents, as well as offering them the opportunity to attend workshops, to play an active role in their child's educational support. Finally, that stigma surrounding the attendance of the LSU program is minimized by allowing students to attend as many general classes as possible and to adjust scheduling to accommodate pullout classes. en_US
