This research investigated educated adults with identified disabilities and their self-directed learning efforts. It involved structured, in-depth interviews with disabled adults in higher education related to their attempts to learn on their own. Evidence of self-directed learning projects existed for each of the participants. All reported difficulties with finding the appropriate tools to improve their learning. A listing of specific techniques to assist their learning efforts was generated from the participants.
