My Journey #2: Language Learning Disability and Immigration

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Listening and speaking is such an everyday occurrence, we hardly notice the mechanisms that actually make it happen. So it isn’t too surprising that evaluators often overlook, or simply don’t consider, a learning disability that involves the processing of language. But those who work with aphasia, or experience it, know what I am talking about. A language learning disability (LLD) is like a mild form of aphasia. Children or adults who have LLD struggle ...

Career Evaluation and Transition

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Adults with ADHD are an interesting bunch. You generally thrive on high-stimulus environments, function at the speed of light… then crash. You’re intensely creative, yet can be too interested in the world to focus in on details or just one thing at a time. Many adults with ADHD are simultaneously perfectionists and procrastinators. Deadlines can seem scary and can easily be avoided at all costs. All this can lead to frustration in the workplace. The ... Read More »
