Literacy Link South Central Community Development Project, A
Authors: Amy Tooke Lacey
This report describes a community development project carried out by Literacy Link South Central (LLSC) in Ontario in 2001-02.
The project began when representatives from programs serving persons with special needs asked LLSC for help in reducing the isolation they felt. At the same time, literacy service providers funded by the Literacy and Basic Skills Branch of the Ministry of Training, Colleges, and Universities (MTCU) asked LLSC to explore what literacy services existed in the various communities within the six-county area served by the network.
The project identified community services and best practices; gaps in services; and ways to bridge the gaps. The author notes that while many of the resources described in the report are specifically aimed at people with developmental disabilities, some of the documents may also be useful when working with people who have other disabilities.
