Summary

This guide is intended to help the literacy practitioner in the identification of adults with learning disabilities. These adults have worked diligently for a year or more to improve comprehension skills, writing and spelling, or work skills, yet, have made little progress. The role of screening as only the first step in a process involving a formal assessment by a qualified professional, is stressed. First, a set of questions to be answered by the literacy practitioner as he/she observes the individual is provided. Next are lists of typical characteristics of individuals with vision/hearing and/or auditory/visual processing problems. Following this is a list of typical problems in three areas of academic performance: reading, expressive language, and mathematics. A list of behavior patterns and psychological manifestations indicating the possibility of a learning disability is also provided. Finally, other means of information gathering such as reviews of records, a screening interview, a screening questionnaire, and a screening tool are suggested. (DB)
