This study aimed at addressing and comparing the linguistic tasks in children with Learning disability (LD) and Typically Developing Children (TDC). For this study, 10 children with LD and 10 TDC between eleven to fifteen years of age were administered two linguistic tasks through the DMDX software in order to measure reaction time. The children considered for the study were native speakers of Kannada, the medium of instruction in their schools being English. There were two linguistic tasks namely Non-words and Cluster words. The analysis of the reaction time values has been carried out across groups and across tasks. The comparative results and findings have been depicted in the study.
