Students with learning disabilities are entering college in far greater numbers than ever before, but most composition instructors have little experience working with these students and current composition theory doesn’t offer much help. In the first comprehensive study to connect composition and learning disabilities, Patricia Dunn both challenges and confirms what many believe about writing. "Learning Re-Abled" examines the many issues that contribute to the learning disability controversy and provides historical perspectives on LD and composition, showing how the two fields complemen
