These four newsletters focus on issues related to adult basic education and the challenges faced when teaching adult learners. The first issue introduces the LDA (Learning Disabilities Association) Learning Center, a private, nonprofit agency intended to maximize the potential of all people with learning disabilities or related learning difficulties so they and their families can lead more fulfilled and productive lives. It also examines proposed activities for the grant received during 2001-02. The second issue describes the screening and evaluation process for adult learning disabilities provided by LDA. This process is based on recommendations from "Bridges to Practice: A Research-Based Guide for Literacy Practitioners Serving Adults with Learning Disabilities," a project of the National Institute for Literacy. The third issue shares appropriate instruction for teachers or tutors of people with learning disabilities, also based on "Bridges to Practice." The fourth issue reviews the literature on the topic of diagnosing learning disabilities in the English as a Second Language population. (Adjunct ERIC Clearinghouse for ESL Literacy Education.) (SM)
