Literacy Activities Handbook (2001)

Supporting Literacy for People with Intellectual / Developmental Challenges

This handbook, developed by the Saskatchewan Association of Rehabilitation Centres (SARC), is a resource for people working with adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities. Volunteer tutors working one-on-one with learners through mainstream literacy programs and disability practitioners delivering programs in group homes, rehabilitation centres, sheltered workshops, and day programs will find the strategies and activities in this book helpful. This handbook constitutes the main written product of the SARC Literacy Training & Support Project and encompasses all the research completed by SARC in two prior projects: the SARC Literacy Needs Project and the SARC Support Inclusion! Literacy Project.

The SARC Literacy Activity Handbook includes the following sections:
- instructional strategies
- literacy activities for learners and tutors
- readings and bibliography
- readings by and for learners
- literacy activity master sheets
