Welcome to NAASLN – the only association for those who serve adults with special learning needs. NAASLN members include educators, trainers, employers, and human service providers. Adults with Special Needs and Learning Disabilities. Adults with with special needs and learning disabilities (also called adult learning difficulties or intellectual difficulties in some countries) often have difficulties with communication which can be related to speech and language, social skills and/or behaviour. I currently work with a special recreational association as a program assistant and one on one inclusion aide. I take pride in working with special needs which can range from toddlers to seniors because it's my passion and my dream to make a change in the world by helping others one on one.
