Intended for employers, supervisors, and coworkers, the booklet presents guidelines for accommodating learning disabled (ld) employees. An introductory section explains the condition, describing its nature and the range of impairments it includes. Five types of learning disabilities are identified: visual, auditory, motor, tactile, and academic. The importance of careful job placement is stressed. Types of accommodations are reviewed, including use of verbal instructions for persons with dyslexia, of short, simple sentences for persons with auditory perceptual problems, and the use of additional training time for people with both auditory and visual perceptual problems. Examples of restructuring jobs to accommodate employes are offered. Suggestions for interaction include being patient and flexible and finding a quiet place for communication. A final section addresses ways a supervisor can help. Supervisors are urged to be direct and specific, to help ld employees understand the hidden rules of the organization, to treat the disability matter-of-factly, and to use common sense. (Cl)

The booklet is designed to help learning disabled (ld) adults become economically independent and fulfill their potential. Introductory chapters define ld and specify such types of ld as auditory perceptual problems, catastrophic responses, directional problems, disinhibition, perceptual problems, and short term memory problems. Psychological effects of never being diagnosed are noted as well as potential dangers of being labeled. Suggestions for securing a professional diagnosis and for diagnosing one's self are given. Parents are encouraged to find practical solutions to family life problems and to teach independent living skills. Vocational aspects are examined, including searching for a job, choosing the right one, and being proud of one's job. Ideas are listed for analyzing strengths and weaknesses to overcome one's own handicap. The importance of social skills training is stressed. Practical coping strategies for dealing with perceptual problems (visual perception, dyslexia, and auditory perception) and central nervous system disorganization (directionality, hyperactivity, disinhibition, catastrophic response, and perseveration) are addressed. A final chapter lists sources of further information, professional help, and self help groups. (Cl)

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rehabilitating the Learning Disabled Adult by Dale S Brown( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research points to numerous examples of the successes that occur when learning disabled adults are rehabilitated. For example, a study of learning disabled adults who were clients of the Arizona Division of Vocational Rehabilitation between 1975 and 1981 revealed that 64 percent of the clients had found work and remained working for two months or more. Included among the many difficulties that learning disabled adults face on the job are the following: deficient academic skills, problems learning a sequence of tasks, problems in managing time and in being on time, inefficiency and errors, clumsiness, and social skills problems. Learning disabled adults can overcome these problems. Many of them, however, need help, and many strategies are available to the vocational rehabilitation counselor for use in helping learning disabled adults. Sometimes knowing about the disability helps the rehabilitation counselor guide clients toward a job in their area of strength. Sometimes a job can be found in which the client does so well that the employer makes accommodations in order to keep a high producer on the job. Other strategies that are useful in rehabilitating learning disabled adults include vocational evaluation, remediation of specific disabilities, social skills instruction, and psychotherapy. (A glossary of types of learning disabilities and a brief bibliography conclude the pamphlet.) (Mn)

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The President's Committee on Employment of People with Disabilities brought together a total of 61 educators, employers, helping professionals, people with learning disabilities, family members, and government policy leaders in a conference designed to identify issues and develop a strategic plan to improve employment opportunities for people with learning disabilities. The 61 delegates worked in both constituency groups and topic groups to brainstorm, clarify issues, and develop recommendations. This report provides transcripts of two introductory speeches: "The Problem, The Future, The Challenge: The Issue of Employability for Persons with Learning Disabilities" (Paul Gerber) and "Pathways to Employment for People with Learning Disabilities: The Process" (Dale Brown). The report then offers recommendations from the following topic groups: work preparation, vocational entry, reasonable accommodation, job advancement, socioadaptability, policy and legislation, attitudes, and definition and diagnosis. Responses of a panel, composed primarily of advocates for disability interests on key Congressional staffs, are then highlighted. The following needs were drawn out from the recommendations: increased public awareness, interagency cooperation, stronger national leadership, outreach to employers, transition services from school to work, and individual responsibility. Appendices provide: the agenda; topic papers used to initiate group discussion; work sheets used in brainstorming, prioritizing, and developing recommendations; the scheme used in identifying potential delegates; a planning committee list; and a participants list.

The Ada and Total Quality Management. Implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act by Dale S Brown( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of a series of guides on implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act (ada), this guide focuses on the relevance of total quality management (tqm) principles to the ada. First, the guide briefly explains both the ada and tqm. Next, "reasonable accommodation" under the ada is discussed and suggestions for using tqm to help implement the ada are offered. These suggestions urge implementation of four tqm principles: capacity building, universal design, focus on strengths rather than deficits, and use of data for decision making. The planning process of tqm is then applied to reasonable accommodation in the form of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle. Suggestions for educating personnel about the ada include adding it to existing tqm training efforts. Several organizational resources are listed. (Db)
