Adults with Learning Disabilities
Many adults grew up knowing that they learned differently, or that academic tasks that seemed to be natural for their peers were especially challenging for them and made school so difficult. Learning disabilities involving reading, spelling, writing, and math tend to be lifelong, and can impact many different facets of a person’s life. For example, problems with reading comprehension, writing and filling out paperwork, keeping up with finances, and helping children with their homework may be a challenge. If you feel you may have a learning disability, you may want to consider undergoing a formal evaluation to determine whether you may have learning challenges and more importantly, what interventions and assistance may be most beneficial for you.
