The Learning Disabilities (LD) creates a real difficulty in the study, because they assume the evolution of certain prerequisites and involve a number of functions that impact against the decoding of the alphabetic code. By definition they have an evolutionary nature, ie they vary with the age of the person. This article explores the characteristics of LD in adulthood and the impact with the
university teaching. It presents the results of an interdisciplinary project in progress (educational,medical and engineering area) at University of Florence, suitable to provide a procedural protocol for the usability of teaching in university and to support individual study. The purpose of project is to design of a protocol for usability of teaching and individual study, even at university level as indicated by the recent Italian legislation (Law 170/2010).
