The Right to Read...and Read Well
The higher one's level of literacy, the greater the likelihood that stable employment is attainable. Studies suggest that more people with disabilities function at the lowest literacy levels and that less people with disabilities are employed than the population at large.
This study focuses on issues related to adult literacy for persons with disabilities in the Halifax Regional Municipality. The study researches the factors which contribute to the utilization of community based literacy programs by persons with disabilities; identifies barriers to learning and models which have had success with this diverse population, and; recommends approaches and/or changes necessary to eliminate the barriers to successful literacy learning for adults with disabilities.
