Adult Literacy and Learning Disabilities: Best Practices for Success (2007)

A Resource Manual for Practitioners

This resource manual was compiled for use during a five-day institute on learning disabilities, held in 2007 at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick.

The manual contains sections on the definition of learning disabilities (LDs); the roles of screening, assessment and psychological reports in determining the presence of an LD; decoding and fluency in reading; reading comprehension; and written expression.

Other sections deal with LDs and social and emotional health; accommodations for LDs; assistive technology; math and learning disabilities; relaxation techniques; statistics on the prevalence of LDs; community support and referral information; and training and employment support services.

One section deals exclusively with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

The manual also contains an extensive bibliography, including web links for many of the resources cited.
