A Note About Learning Disabilities

Literacy Mid-South unfortunately does not have the resources available to provide learning disability assessments for all of our adult students.  Your student may have an undiagnosed learning disability, but we urge you not to diagnose this yourself.  If you are concerned about your student's progress, please contact Literacy Mid-South.  We have various supplemental materials for learning disabled students and several places we can refer the student.  Don't take matters into your own hands--give us a call!
