Summary

This resource guide is designed to help adults who suspect they have a learning disability gather sufficient information to set realistic goals, achieve those goals, and lead productive lives. The first section, which discusses assessing learning disabilities, includes lists of agencies equipped to help diagnose learning disabilities in adults and questions to ask qualified professionals. A checklist of 28 identified characteristics of adults with learning disabilities is presented along with annotated lists of 13 national resource centers, 9 organizations concerned with general education, 8 learning disability organizations, 3 attention deficit disorder organizations, 4 organizations concerned with employment issues, 5 organizations concerned with technology, 16 organizations concerned with life management issues, and 20 publications of relevance to learning-disabled adults. A list of 16 pertinent toll-free numbers and information on the HEATH Resource Center and National Adult Literacy and Learning Disabilities Center conclude the guide. (MN)
