Summary

This publication, which is based on the experiences gained in a workplace literacy program for learning-disabled workers at a paper factory in Massachusetts, is designed as a beginners' guide to identifying and addressing issues of learning disabilities in the adult education classroom. Section 1 defines the term "learning disability," lists common identifying characteristics of learning-disabled students, and briefly discusses assessment options (oral interviews and testing). The history of the development of the learning disabilities component of the workplace literacy program at Hampden Papers, Inc., is outlined in Section 2. Discussed in the section on methods and materials are accommodation, phonics instruction, lesson formats and materials, activities extending beyond phonics instruction, and classroom applications. Section 4 profiles four participants in the Hampden Papers workplace literacy program who have learning disabilities. Each profile contains the following: information on the student's school, family/personal, and work background; testing and diagnosis results; and intervention strategies used. Included in Section 5 are a student intake assessment instrument and a list of 26 phonics-based materials, training and background materials, testing instruments and learning styles inventories, testing sites, and resource organizations.
