"The thing about living with any disability is that you adapt; you do what works for you." ― Stella Young

Welcome to the Learning Disabilities page at the Resource Center! We hope that you find this page to be a wealth of information on learning disabilities and, specifically, how learning disabilities affect our adult literacy learners. It is estimated that anywhere from 50-80% of learners in adult literacy programs cope with learning disabilities, so chances are that you will have or have already had a student who is learning disabled.
