    This master thesis deals with emotional and social problems in the population of pupils with specific learning difficulties (SpLD). I examined if school professionals notice the difference between the two populations in emotional and social domains, and what activities or strategies they use to prevent or deepen problems in these two areas. I was also interested in what activities and strategies they find appropriate for the population of pupils with SpLD. Therefore, I created a questionnaire. I selected a purposive sample which covered the different profiles of professionals in regular elementary schools, namely teachers, special educational needs teachers who provide additional professional assistance for the students with SpLD in regular elementary schools, and school counsellors who are not special educational needs teachers by profession. I used descriptive and causal non-experimental method of research. The research approach was qualitative and quantitative. I found out that more than half of the school professionals who were included in the survey noticed the differences in emotional and social fields among students with SpLD and those without them. For the prevention and deepening of difficulties in these two areas school professionals use mostly well-known strategies and methods. In this master thesis I collected a list of possible activities and strategies that school professionals can integrate into their practice to work on these two areas with pupils with SpLD. This list is based on the responses of the participants included in the study and on the review of the relevant scientific literature. The scientific contribution of the master thesis are the findings on the type and frequency of problems in the emotional and social area in the population of students with SpLD based on academic publishing and observations conducted by school professionals. The applied contribution is a collection of activities and strategies for the prevention or deepening of difficulties in the emotional and social area for students with SpLD.
