The article maps the current state of learning the subject geography for pupils with a mild degree of mental disability in the condition of special classes and special primary schools in Slovakia. The aim of the research was to identify, describe and analyze the needs of teachers of geography in these two educational environments. The data was obtained from 78 teachers of geography by using the questionnaire method. The analysis of data revealed the biggest shortcomings not only in the methodological support of this subject but also in the absence of teacher´s education. Statistically based research results point not only to the absence of digital educational content but also to the more frequented use of digital technologies, to which a new form of distance education has contributed to a large extent.
