This resource was developed to expand the abilities of adult foundational learning practitioners to work effectively with adults with reading difficulties.

The Toolkit:

  • Provides practitioners with information from the fields of learning disabilities and reading research.
  • Builds awareness of the reading process. Where does reading break down for this learner? How can I help?
  • Provides instructional strategies and resources that are effective for learners with LDs – and for all learners.
  • Adds to understanding of strategies to support social-emotional challenges of adult learners.
  • Builds an awareness of “red flags” for learning disabilities to help guide instruction and decisions about pursuing a psycho-educational assessment.
