Summary

This resource paper provides information about postsecondary programs for young adults with substantial learning disabilities and other special needs. The introductory section outlines characteristics of the population and components of successful educational programs. Subsequent sections include guidelines for recognizing the young person's strengths and weaknesses and recommendations for teaching them independent living skills. Another section, addressed to the young adult, helps the student assess his or her job readiness skills, work habits, and independent living skills. The paper is designed to be read by the young adult and then to serve as a basis for discussion with parents or other advisers. Several postsecondary programs for young adults with learning disabilities are listed and briefly described, within the categories of residential programs, campus-based programs, vocational day programs, and social skills training programs. Final sections list employment information sources and selected publications. (JDD)
