This Comment is a guide for both employers and employees in successfully complying with the ADA's provisions, as they relate to persons with learning disabilities. Part II of this paper examines the types of employment discrimination that individuals with learning disabilities encounter in the application, daily work, and promotion processes. Part III provides an overview of the employment discrimination provisions of the ADA and how those provisions apply to people with learning disabilities. To illustrate how different people with learning disabilities fare in the workforce, Part IV includes narratives of two learning disabled people attempting to find equal employment and opportunity. These narratives provide a starting point for developing processes to integrate such people into the workforce. Part V provides an analysis of the problems confronting people with learning disabilities and provides suggestions for successfully integrating people with learning disabilities into the workforce.
