This paper reviews findings from a literature search on literacy of adults with disability in developing countries. The research indicates that there are limited studies in international development, education, health, or disability studies that address this issue. The paper highlights that, though inclusive efforts for children are important, more attention should to be directed to providing literacy skills to illiterate and marginally literate disabled adults. This paper is useful for people interest in illiteracy among adults with disabilities in the developing world
