A Guide to Planning Your Career and Finding a Job for People with Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder, and Dyslexia
Dale Susan Brown
Do not let the title of this book fool you. Although it is designed to help people with specific types of disabilities choose a career, and find and keep a job, it is an excellent work with a wealth of sound advice of us all. Carefully researched and written in a clear and concise style, it is one of the best books on career and employment issues I have ever read.
The book consists of an introduction, 15 chapters, a bibliography, and an index. The book is a treasure trove of information and techniques that should be useful to everyone, not just people with the specific disabilities described in the title.
The book is well organized and written in a clear an easy to understand style that helps the reader to analyze and deal with the various issues faced by people with learning disabilities, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), and Dyslexia.
However, as I read through the book I realized that these are issues that everyone faces when they are looking for a job, dealing with school, and handling workplace problems. The author’s advice is applicable to all of us. Her thoughtful counsel about advancing in the work place, dealing with co workers, looking for a job, and all the other things she addresses, is good solid advice for all.
I highly recommend this book to everyone, disabled or not. I would call this book “Universal Design for Finding and Keeping the Job of your Choice!” Everyone should buy and read this book!
If you would like to buy a copy of the book, the Center will receive a small commission if you buy the book from Amazon. This is a good way to help the Center and help yourself to learn about Job Hunting and all of its attendant issues.
