The current research is designed to examine the relationship between a training program designed for students with learning disabilities and their perceived competence. The need for such endeavor must be accorded due attention in order to create a comprehensive policy reform that takes into account the different dimensions of effectual reform. The study declares the need for providing a clear insight into the obstacles faced by Jordanian students, especially those in the rural areas, who are continually hampered by learning disabilities. In an attempt to answer the research questions, the “Perceived Competence Scale for Children” (Harter, 1982) was used as the main tool in the current study. Moreover, the study sample consisted of 26 fourth-grade students with learning disabilities who joined the resource rooms of the Ministry of Education in the Jerash district of Jordan. Findings of the study indicated the presence of significant statistical differences between the experimental group that underwent the training program and the control group that was not exposed to it.
