Assisting Adults with Learning Disabilities (2013)

This booklet offers a variety of strategies for practitioners working with adults who have learning disabilities.

The authors begin with a series of studying tips for visual, auditory, or kinesthetic learners. They encourage instructors to assess individuals' learning styles and teach to the stronger style.

They suggest ways to keep learners motivated, including giving clear and frequent feedback, and recognizing success. Other suggestions focus on learning strategies; compensation; organization; and effective use of technology.

They also provide a learning checklist to help practitioners collect and analyze information about learners; to interview learners themselves; and to talk to other people in the learner’s life, including family members and work colleagues.
