Specific learning disability (SLD) is a common and invisible yet highly impactful disability. There have been many changes in the field of SLD. These range from changing concepts, introduction of newer diagnostic systems, presentation of the Rights of Persons with Disability Act, of 2016, an increasing awareness in parents, teachers, and public, filing of legal case, and the Honorable High Court issuing orders regarding this disability. All these happenings require reflecting and implementing new strategies. This will not only to benefit all the concerned people but also make the process of diagnosis and intervention streamlined. In the past, Maharashtra has been a forerunner in granting help to these children. Keeping this in mind, it seemed necessary to look at the current scenario of SLD in our state and suggest a way forward.
