This document is part of a literacy kit for adults with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), a permanent brain injury that occurs while the fetus is developing during pregnancy. People with FASD have problems processing information and may struggle to understand what they hear and read.
This module covers a variety of writing and grammar topics, including journaling; sentence fragments; capitalization and punctuation; creative writing; and workplace communication.
For each topic, there is a teacher’s guide that sets out objectives, gives an overview of the concepts covered, and lists materials required.
There are also student handouts and, where relevant, practice exercises. In the module on Workplace Experience, there is also a sample job application, as well as teacher’s notes on job skills, such as the need for plain language.
