Learning disabilities (LD) are one of the essential issues in education, and also a very difficult challenge to
overcome it in practice. This study compares to Japan and the U.S. as an example case of a country where LD

Supports for LD students may be in a challenging stage, but educational support based on their educational culture will result a meaningful outcomes for their future support systems.
