Abstract

The current study aims to review the postgraduate studies on learning disabilities in preschoolers in Turkey. In the study, document analysis was employed as a qualitative research method. The sampling was determined based on the criteria that the studies were focused on the pre-school period only, there was no interval between the years of the study, and the full texts of the studies were included in the Council of Higher Education Thesis Center. Nine postgraduate studies that were conducted in the preschool period were included in the sample. Results show that most of the postgraduate studies were master’s theses and most of the studies utilized quantitative methods as research designs. The studies were mostly conducted in educational sciences institutes and children made up the majority of the participants in these studies. The results showed that the first research on the subject was completed in 2005 and there was only one study in the years 2010, 2012, 2017, and 2022. There were two studies regarding the learning disability in 2018 and 2019. It can be said that learning disability studies needs more attention in preschool age.
