If you have not had a thorough and recent evaluation, contact the adult learning disabilities clinic at a local hospital. You can also call the Psychological Association in your state (usually in the capital; ask the operator for the (name of state) Psychological Association and ask them to refer you to someone who works with young adults (or older adults, as the case may be). Or, you can contact the office of the Learning Disability Association in your state ( http://www.ldanatl.org and look for state affiliates). While you are at the LDA website, go to the adult issues areas and learn more about resources that are available for high school graduates who have learning disabilities. You will be pleased to know that most colleges offer services which can help students with learning disabilities become very successful. If you are interested in going to college, contact a local university and ask them what services they provide. More than at any time in history, there is hope and opportunity for adults with learning disabilities. It may take a bit of work to find the resources, but they exist. Good luck and don't give up.
