The World Is a Learning Place: Helping Learning Disabled Adults Develop Survival Skills.
Weiss, Helen Ginandes; Weiss, Martin S.
The authors describe difficulties encountered by learning disabled (LD) students and summarize ways LD young adults have learned to cope with daily problems. The importance of understanding their problems, seeking out sensitive professionals, developing strategies to cope with classroom demands, and obtaining counseling are stressed. Strategies found successful in dealing with stress and tension, educational problems, social situations, and employment interviews are reviewed. A checklist is provided to help LD students analyze their skills and relate them to the demands of the job. (CL)
