Intervention Practices in Adult Literacy Education for Adults with Learning Disabilities
Scanlon, David; Lenz, B. Keith
Journal of Postsecondary Education and Disability, v16 n1 p32-49 Fall 2002
Adult literacy education is increasingly focused on preparing adults with literacy skills for the world of work. Assumptions about how this goal is being met should be made with caution, given that adult education also serves other goals, adult educators have diverse training, and many adult students are presumed to have learning disabilities (LD) and histories of not benefiting from literacy interventions. Adult educators from around the nation were surveyed on what literacy areas they address and what interventions and materials they use for adults with LD. Analyses of the responses indicate trends in the nature of interventions used. (Contains 3 tables.)
