Learning Disabled Children Growing Up : A Follow-Up Into Adulthood
Currently there is great interest in the neuropsychology of learning disabilities and in their long-term course. This unique volume describes the author's research on adult outcomes of childhood learning disabilities, providing comprehensive information about the long-term adjustment of learning-disabled children studied on a prospective basis. The subjects were divided into a group with definite neurological impairment, a group without impairment, and a group with minimal or questionable impairment. The findings show persistence of learning disability into adult life and poor outcome in many areas of personal, social, occupational, and health adjustment, as well as persistently lower test scores compared to control subjects. Filling a gap in the field by looking at the adult side of this issue, which has remained relatively unexplored, this book will be of value to neuropsychologists, neurologists, clinical and child psychologists, and psychiatrists.
