They were comprised of primary and secondary special education teachers (N=82), primary and secondary school counselors (N=45), and primary and secondary school children (N=165). The results show that, there were 12 problems found among special children. The results indicated that, special education teachers ranked the problems such as more severe, disobedience, impertinence, tattling, and overcritical. What so ever, counselors noted the problems as more severe dishonesty, depression, hyperactivity, easily discouraged, enuresis, shyness, dependency, and dreaminess.
