We Are ABLE: Success Stories from Northwest Ohio Adult Basic and Literacy Education Programs.
Northwest ABLE Resource Center, Toledo, OH.
This publication provides photographs and the success stories of seven students in Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) in Northwest Ohio. The stories detail the sacrifices, dedication, and hard work that contributed to the students' success, as well as the work of the dedicated, hard-working instructors who facilitated their learning. Subjects of the stories are Roger Brown, who has severe dyslexia; Vanetta McGee, who graduated from high school reading at a third-grade level; Sandy Punches, who wanted to earn her General Educational Development (GED) diploma after circumstances prevented her from graduating from high school; Elysha Fyffe Dennis, who was diagnosed with learning disabilities and dropped out of high school; Paula Kline, who entered a GED class because she wanted to become a nurse; and Yanina Nagornaya and Aleksandr Nagornayy, immigrants from the Ukraine, who attended ABLE's English as a second language classes. Names and addresses of the 31 Northwest Ohio ABLE programs conclude the document. (YLB)
