Objective: The aim of the current research was to investigate the effectiveness of early Psycho-Educational interventions in improving the academic performance of children with mathematics learning disabilities. 
Methods: The study population consisted of 4th grade elementary male students with math learning disabilities in Esfahan in the educational year 2012-2013. Thirty such students were selected using multistage random cluster sampling and divided into experimental and control groups (each group consisted of 15 children). The data collection tools included: Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children–Revised Fourth Edition, Dyscalculia Diagnostic Test, math academic performance test. Clinical interviews were also held. The design was quasi-experimental and the early psycho-educational intervention was performed in the experimental group. Data was analyzed by analysis of covariance.
Results: Findings indicate that early psycho-educational interventions can improve the academic performance of children with mathematics learning disabilities (p<0.001).
Conclusion: Early psycho-educational interventions (attention, memory, executive function) can considerably help students with math learning disabilities, as basic math learning skills are strengthened.
