Fact Sheet: The Adult with Learning Disabilities and Employment (2011)

In this brief document, the authors note that the formal identification and disclosure of the presence of a learning disability can benefit both the employee, by helping him keep a job, and the employer, by reducing costly staff turnover.

The authors describe signs that an employee may have a learning disability, including performance inconsistency; communication confusion; poor coordination; and difficulty concentrating.

They discuss job accommodation and assistive technology, including flexible work assignments; access to word processors and voice-recognition phones; and timers to help recognize time spent on tasks.
