LITERATURE REVIEW 2 Problem/Need The American Psychiatric Association has a mission to help those with mental disorders. When it comes down to illiteracy, according to the American Psychiatric Association, illiteracy would fall under the category of specific learning disorder. Specific learning is also known as learning disorder/disability and can be defined as a neurodevelopmental disorder that begins during school-age, although may not be recognized until adulthood (American Psychiatric Association, 2019). The only way that illiteracy can be diagnosed is after after the child has began their formal education. In order to be diagnosed with any specific learning disorder, according to the American Psychiatric Association, the child must have difficulty in at least 1 out of the six areas for at least 6 months. In this case the area would be difficulty reading which includes inaccuracy, slow and only with much effort (American Psychiatric Association, 2019). In order make a diagnosis of illiteracy, a professional would combine observation, interviews, family history as well as school reports before making a diagnosis. In 1930, illiteracy had a completely different meaning. The U.S. Census Bureau, in 1930, defined illiteracy as an individual who was unable to read/write and are over the age of 10.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
