From Dunce to Doctor: A Critical Autobiography of a Dyslexic Doctoral Student Pursuing a Doctorate of Clinical Psychology
Hunt, David N.
ProQuest LLC, Psy.D. Dissertation, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology
Much is known about the phenomenon of learning disabilities, especially dyslexia in children. Only recently, however, has psychological research focused on adult learning disabilities. The bulk of research on the phenomenon of adult learning disabilities has been quantitative research, which neglected the subjective experience of those it is researching. This study will pair critical autobiography with phenomenology to illustrate the experience of having dyslexia as well as critiquing the psychological, educational, and legal fields as well as society's treatment of individuals with learning disabilities.
