Reading expectations have risen dramatically throughout society over the last decade, and these rising expectations create particular concerns for adolescents and adults with neurological disorders. Reading well enough to follow simple instructions is no longer adequate even for entry-level jobs and, even more worrisome, is also no longer adequate to meet many health-care, financial, parenting, and home-management needs. Adding to the concern is the rising incidence of neurological impairments across the lifespan, including more children and adults having traumatic brain injuries, more adolescents and young adults having strokes, and more baby boomers entering old age having strokes or being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.
