Learning Disabilities in Adult Literacy Settings - Resource List (2010)

This list was compiled to help adult literacy educators find resources pertaining to learning disabilities. The list is organized according to six principles of good practice aimed at supporting a “whole life” approach to working with people with learning disabilities in adult literacy settings.

Those principles are: finding out about learning disabilities and how they shape adult literacy work; building relationships of trust and dialogue through intake, screening and learning profiles; “learning-disabilities friendly” instructional strategies and supports inside and outside the classroom; addressing issues that may come along with learning disabilities, such as fear, low self esteem, anxiety, experiences of violence, poverty and isolation; changing how the world thinks about learning disabilities through system advocacy, self advocacy and awareness raising; and self-directed professional development.

The resources deal with learning disabilities in general as well as with specific conditions like dyslexia, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, attention deficit disorder, brain injury and deafness.

The resources listed include reports; books; websites; documentary films; literature reviews; and tool kits. Most listings include annotations.
