Contrasting Adult Literacy Learners with and without Specific Learning Disabilities

Mellard, D.F., & Patterson, M.B. (2008). Contrasting adult literacy learners with and without specific learning disabilities. Remedial and Special Education, 29(3), 133-144.

Topic: Adult Literacy
Subcategory: Research
Summary: Adult literacy learners with and without a specific learning disability (SLD) were found to differ in academic, life experience, and demographic variables, and SLD status was found to correlate with low reading scores and negative perceptions about personal limitations. Authors conclude that SLD status should be considered a relevant variable in adult education that warrants a special teaching approach.
