Summary

This guide contains a selection of national resources to assist adults who suspect they may have a learning disability. The guide begins with information on assessing learning disabilities, recommendations for locating a qualified professional to conduct assessments appropriate for adults, and a list of questions to ask qualified professionals. A learning disability checklist is included that identifies characteristics of a person with a learning disability. The guide then includes a collection of organizations, publications, and programs relevant to learning disabilities. Only organizations that operate on a national level and can put inquirers in contact with regional or local resources have been selected. A short description of each organization's activities is provided to assist in identifying which resources are best suited to individual needs and concerns. Publications listed in the guide provide general information for adults with learning disabilities. Programs listed not only provide the learning component but also offer residential housing. Resources are divided into the following categories: (1) national resource centers (14); (2) general education (9); (3) learning disability organizations (7); (4) attention deficit disorder organizations (5); (5) employment (4); (6) technology (6); (7) life management (14); (8) publications (17); and (9) toll-free numbers (24).
