Summary or Abstract : School achievement is decidedly important in today's society, and is a factor in positive adaptation. A learning disability (LD) is an adversity that is frequently linked to poor academic outcome. The purpose of this study was to look at factors that influenced the pursuit of a university education and by definition enhanced positive adaptation. Both qualitative and quantitative methodologies were used. Two separate interrelated studies were conducted. Themes generated from the interview data in the qualitative component of the study were used as the foundation to create a survey utilized in the quantitative component of the study. This dissertation contains a series of three papers that are logically connected. After a brief introduction, the first paper presents the risk/resilience model as a valuable tool for clarifying and making sense of the complexity of the interaction between individuals with LD and their environment. First, the definition of a learning disability and the paradigm shift in the field of learning disabilities is discussed. Second, the models that link risk and resilience is examined, followed by a brief survey of research on resilience. Lastly, the resilience framework is applied to students with LD. The second paper describes the qualitative component of the research, which used a basic interpretive qualitative design. Common themes were derived from storied narratives. These themes were: determination, working harder, helpfulness, positive perceptions, supporters, diverse trajectories to university, and accommodations. The rationale for the use of detailed narratives, the methodology used, the data analysis, and the themes found are discussed. The third paper describes the quantitative component of the study. The themes generated from the interviews were used in this study to form the foundation for a survey instrument that was utilized to determine how prevalent these themes were in a larger sample. The themes proved to be important in academic resilience. The dissertation concludes with a paper that briefly summarizes the studies, synthesises the results of both components of the study, suggests avenues for future research, and includes a personal comment..
