Description and Definition of Learning Disabilities. Academic Assessment and Remediation of Adults with Learning Disabilities: A Resource Series for Adult Basic Education Teachers.
Hoy, Cheri A.; Gregg, K. Noel
The first of seven monographs on adults with learning disabilities (LD), the document focuses on the evidences of LD in adults. Difficulties in adjustment after school are noted and exemplified in a case study. Case studies are also cited to show the evidence of LD in cognitive processes, academics, and behavior, and to demonstrate the interrelationships among areas of learning. Deficiencies identified in research are listed for the areas of oral language, thinking and reasoning, interpersonal relationships, behavior, reading, mathematics, and written language. The definition of LD adopted by the Association for Children and Adults with Learning Disabilities is presented and explained. A glossary of approximately 50 terms concludes the booklet. (CL)
