Summary

The Virginia 1999-2000 Learning Disabilities Training and Dissemination (LDTD) project was undertaken to improve educational services to adults with learning disabilities. During the project, learners and tutors from six community-based literacy programs across Virginia volunteered to share their experiences as they participated in pilot testing of changes in intake processes, learner assessment, tutor training, and instructional practices that were made as a result of the LDTD project. Two student-tutor pairs from each program volunteered to share their experiences in writing. During the six-month project, the students and tutors submitted written pieces on the following topics: information gained about learning disabilities; reactions to new teaching or learning approaches; successful learning experiences; challenges and frustrations experienced; strategies and materials that should be recommended to others; and advice to other students and tutors. The following are among the major project findings: (1) the tutors and students have good personal and working relationships; (2) tutors and learners alike are able to articulate specific difficulties and are often frustrated but still hopeful; (3) a variety of strategies, tools, and materials are being used; and (4) progress is being made. (Eight selected student responses to the six questions and a list of twelve resources cited are appended.) (MN)
