Learning to Achieve is a comprehensive project developed by the National Institute for Literacy to provide adult service providers with research-based information to help them work effectively with adults with learning disabilities(LD). This document is a companion guide to two other products, a literature review (OTAN #6073, DP0042) and training modules. The six chapters reinforce and extend the content of the training modules by providing information on relevant characteristics of adults with LD and examples of effective intervention strategies. References and additional resources are provided for each chapter.
