This report provides the results of the three-phase project "Building Bridges for Adults with a Developmental Disability."
Phase one was used was to exchange information about positive developments in the fields of literacy and developmental disabilities. In addition, barriers, gaps and overlaps between the two service sectors were identified.
In phase two, the focus was upon developing a shared base of knowledge regarding the preparation and supports needed to promote successful participation by people with developmental disabilities in literacy programs.
During the final stage of the project, participants explored ways of building mutually beneficial partnerships to promote effective and efficient services to the people served by both groups while enhancing literacy.
