Norton, Marian; Falk, Ian
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v39 n3 p185-96 1992
This paper describes adult literacy pedagogy and philosophy in Australia and reports on two studies of adult reading disabilities. The first study, with 102 asthma patients, showed important differences among different tests of reading comprehension. The second study, using 11 case studies, indicated the need to integrate adult literacy instruction with the learner's life situation. (DB)
