The EDUFAX Educational FAQ


Question #37:
  • I am 50 years old and am positive I have a learning disability. I have difficulties with abstract problems and cannot do simple Algebra. I have finished a graduate program but cannot graduate until I fulfill my math requirement. Is it too late to do something about my learning disability and what recourses do I have?
Answer #37:
  • It is never too late to learn about accommodations which can help you learn. The first step is to get tested by a psychologist who can help you evaluate whether or not you have a learning disability. If you do have a learning disability, testing will also identify the special accommodations and remediation you will need.
    You should contact the Learning Disabilities Association in your state and ask about resources and referrals. You can find information about the LDA in your state on the LDA Internet site.
    It might be helpful for you to engage a tutor so that you could learn enough math to pass your requirement for graduation. Don't give up! There are ways to overcome most difficulties which stem from a learning disability. In some cases, students with diagnosed learning disabilities are given course waivers or substitutions for subjects which are inappropriate for their learning styles.
    The most important thing is: Don't Give Up!
    EDUFAX provides Verbal Test Prep Tutorials (PSAT/SAT I/SAT II/ACT).
    EDUFAX provides services for the Learning Disabled Student.
