How can an adult overcome a learning disability he's had for so long?

Let's talk

Open-uri20121027-4340-t145s9
The type, severity, & pervasiveness of the LD will determine its treatment. Obviously, the LD needs to be described & appropriate interventions made. Yes, it's possible to overcome a long standing LD if the patient has the desire and fortitude to try. Many appropriate accommodations occur in LD patients, some of which they are entirely unaware of. Seek help from developmental doc & therapists
