    Abstract

    The thesis discusses the findings of researches on pupils with learning disabilities, specific learning disabilities and severe specific learning disabilities. The thesis includes experts’ findings on emotions and their impact on an individual’s functioning. It also explains certain concepts such as learning disabilities, general learning disabilities, specific learning disabilities and severe specific learning disabilities. The thesis discusses the significance of successful psychosocial adjustment for an individual and explains the concepts of resilience, risk and safety factors. The last part of the thesis includes thorough discussion on emotional states and reactions of pupils with severe learning disabilities when coping with different types of difficulties. The population of pupils with severe learning disabilities is very diverse; therefore, their emotional states and reactions when coping with difficulties are diverse as well. Based on the results of researches conducted by several experts, we can infer that students with severe learning disabilities experience negative reactions by their peers more often (and other people in their surroundings), which can cause emotional crises. Since these pupils do not want to be stigmatized, they often hide their emotions or express them in socially less appropriate ways. The pupils, who are able to control their emotions appropriately, are more successful in school. The most active way of coping with peer problems for pupils with severe learning disabilities is for them to address the issue, whereas the strategy of hiding the problems may cause psychosocial difficulties.
