Helping Learning Disabled Adults through Special Tutorial Techniques. Final Report. 1992-1993.
Reading Area Community Coll., PA.
A project offered special training to instructors and volunteer tutors for adult basic education classes in recognizing and helping adults who are enrolled in adult education programs with learning disabilities. These instructors and tutors were taught the necessary skills through a series of three 3-hour inservice sessions. The regular instructors and tutors were trained in the use of alternate techniques that would enable them to assist students on an individual basis and help them advance their general literacy skills. Some strategies presented were "Tic Tac Toe" math, individualized vocabulary program, rhyming lists, and sight-sound word recognition. Eight volunteer tutors were chosen to attend. (An appendix contains evaluation forms completed by tutors concerning a student with whom alternate teaching techniques were used.) (YLB)
