In this study an analysis was conducted of language-based learning disabilities with a focus on dyslexia. Information was gathered from six participants by conducting ethnographic interviews. Research found that each individual experienced unique challenges, but shared a common need for a variety of accommodations depending on the severity of his or her learning disability(ies). Each participant was affected differently by the discourse and stigmas associated with his or her learning disability(ies). The study concluded that despite the variations in their personal and educational journeys, each participant felt nothing would hold them back from accomplishing their goals.
