有一个名叫塞缪尔·柯克（Samuel Kirk）的人，他提出了“学习障碍”这个名字。在这个术语代替了“脑损伤”和“最小的脑功能障碍”之后，似乎有学习困难儿童的希望，美国立法机构开始认识到残疾人的权利，防止学校歧视特殊需要学生，美国的立法法则要求所有的权利都是为有特殊需要的个人的权利而保留的，即使残疾不在特殊需要的法律范围内，仍然有特殊需要的学生的教师和教育者对这些学生的适当教育负责，即使意味着失去工作或被关在监狱里，他们也会在法庭上被追究责任，学校开始为学习障碍者制定计划，为教师提供经费培训在学习障碍中，整合阶段最重要的部分是“残疾儿童教育法”（P. L 94-142）。这个行为是为了确保所有的学生不管遇到什么样的问题都会得到“免费和适当的公共教育”。
There was a man by the name of Samuel Kirk, who came up with the name "learning disabled". After this term took the place of" brain injured" and minimal brain dysfunction", it seemed like there was hope for children with learning problems. The U.S. legislature began to recognize the rights of individuals with disabilities, which prevents schools from discriminating against special needs students. The US legislature laws demand that all of the rights be reserved for the rights of anindividual with special needs to have an appropriate education, even if the disabilities are not covered under the special needs law. The teachers and educators of special needs students remain accountable for the appropriate education of these students, and they will be held accountable in the court of law even if it means losing their job or locked up in jail. Schools started establishing programs for the learning disabled. Funding was provided for teachers to be trained in learning disabilities. The most important part of the Integration Phase is the Education for All Handicapped Children Act (PL 94-142) in 1975. This act was to ensure that all students no matter what type of problem they had would receive a "free and appropriate public education.
