Summary

The Kingsbury Center in Washington, D.C. works with adult learning disabled persons providing assessment, remediation, and counseling services. Assessment emphasizes taking a detailed history, along with formal testing, informal testing, and behavioral observation. Intervention focuses on specific coping strategies and remediation in specific academic or skill areas. Testing measures include the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Scale--Revised, personality measures such as the Myers Briggs Test, and standard reading tests. Also evaluated are written essays, problem solving mathematics skills, career interests and aptitude. Two case studies, one of a 46-year-old attorney with a writing disability, and the other of a secretary with dyslexia, are offered as examples of the Kingsbury approach to adult learning disability.
