Introduction: Today, children with IQ of 84-70 are not classified as mentally retarded. These children are able to study alongside other normal students, but they are not able to learn content and solve problems like their normal children and their peer, due to their late mental development.
Methods: The purpose of this study is to investigate the used methods for training of slow learners in elementary schools in North Khorasan and provide strategies for improving it. The statistical population includes all slow learners and their teachers in the North Khorasan province. A sample of 384 people was selected using Morgan sample size formula through simple random sampling. The research tools included student health records and researcher-made questionnaire for examining educational status. 300 completed questionnaires were collected. Descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation) and SPSS software were used to analyze the data.
Results: The results of this study showed that 19.67% of teachers reported that they provided training for slow learners, other than the usual classroom activities, and among these teachers, 11.33% mentioned that they used a different method for teaching late students. Teachers have used a variety of ways to train slow learners, most of which include providing extra tuition at leisure and sports, helping the family to work home-based homework, teaching lessons from the first grade. Also, the results showed that Studentchr('39')s academic performance was in the borderline situation.
Conclusion: To improve the quality of training for slow learners, all involved  individuals including   educational system, the manager, the teacher, the classmates and the studentchr('39')s family and the student themselves should be involved in training process.
