Learning Disabilities in Adults

This resource list was compiled to assist adult literacy educators looking for resources in the area of learning disabilities. Learning Disabilities, particularly in adulthood, are a “whole life” issue that shape not only literacy and learning, but also people’s self-esteem, family and work life. This reference list reflects a wide variety of strategies and philosophies related to learning disabilities.  Every item on this list is available, either from the library or online.
