Checklist: The Signs of Learning and Attention Issues in Adults

By Kate Kelly

Maybe you’ve suspected for a while that you have a learning or attention issue. Or maybe you’ve recently become curious about why certain things are hard for you. Either way, take a look at this list of some signs of learning and attention issues. If you’re concerned, find out who can help.

Do you...

If you recognize some of these signs in yourself, you might want to consider getting evaluated. It’s never too late to get the support you need to succeed.

If you need support, look into your local chapter of the Learning Disabilities Association of America, one of our founding partners. You can also explore our information on learning and attention issues like dyslexia and ADHD. Our articles are aimed at parents of kids with these issues. But in them you may still find the definitions and basics you need.
