During this project, existing literacy outcomes were examined, a literature search was conducted, and focus groups were held with front-line literacy practitioners, adult learners, developmental workers and counselors. The central purpose of the project was to identify ways in which the Demonstrations of the Learning Outcomes could best enhance success for adults with developmental disabilities in literacy programs. As well, a major theme of the project was to maintain the integrity of literacy programs and to ensure successful literacy opportunities for adult learners' individual growth and progress.
This document presents sample Demonstrations. It reports the results of the Demonstrations of the Learning Outcomes to organizations and individuals representing the fields of literacy and developmental disabilities.
