Mental retardation is a very complex and specific society problem that appears in the earliest period of the child development. Speech represents one of the most important human qualities and undoubtedly a need for each individual, therefore, the logical conclusion is that it is essential for everyone, even for the mentally retarded individual as well. It is a fact that the speech deficit is one of the general and serious problems with mentally retarded children, which results in damaged, underdeveloped and late development of their speech. Therefore, these conditions also lower success in orthography level of handwriting. That is why we decided to use instruments which the special rehabilitation diagnostic offers, to evaluate the orthography level of handwriting of the mildly mentally retarded pupils in special primary schools, and to compare the obtained results with the success in Macedonian language, gender and the age of the pupil, in order to view their connection and continuance in their developing period. Many researches, as well as this one, have shown that the disorthography in a huge percentage is found in children with mild mental retardation. The results of the research have shown a low orthography level of the handwriting in children with mild mental retardation, which is dependant on the class-age, sex and the success in Macedonian language.
