Adult Basic Education Disability Manual
ABE programs and teachers face significant challenges in serving their students with disabilities. In the spirit of technological innovation, we designed this website for 24/7/365 access to disability resources. The easy navigation, instructional help, easy downloads and search engine cater to ALL users. The fully accessible website allows access for individuals with disabilities. The disabilities represented address the challenges faced by Adult Basic Education programs nationwide.Content areas include: Identification and Diagnosis; Classroom Challenges; Instructional Strategies; Interview Questions; Testing Accommodations; English Language Learner (ELL) Applications; Resources and Website Links; and Case Studies.
This comprehensive resource is a very valuable reference for the field of adult education. It is of high quality and has great practical value. This tool should be part of all program managers, teachers, and volunteers orientation/training. If every program in the US used this manual as a training tool, instructors would be able to give more support to students, and students would be exposed to more approaches that worked. However, in order to continue its value, the resource needs to be updated to reflect changes that will be coming soon regarding testing accommodation information.
