Statewide Staff Development Project: Adults with Learning Differences. Final Report, 1999-2000.
This project provided adult educators in Pennsylvania with information about adults with learning differences and training in the use of alternative instructional techniques. Although the majority of training was conducted through presentations, many more adult educators were affected by the project through the information provided in the Learning disAbilities Newsletter, the instructional materials distributed to programs, and technical assistance available through the toll-free phone service. The training included more than 40 topics allowing teachers and volunteer tutors to customize their staff development to meet the specific needs of their programs. These four new training sessions were developed as part of the 1999-2000 project year: Teaching Writing to Adults with Weak Language Skills, Accommodating Adults with Learning Disabilities in Adult Education Programs, Recent Research About Learning Disabilities, and Learning Disabilities Forum. (Appendixes include a list of training dates and locations and sample newsletter.) (YLB)
