When looking back over the last nine months, it is hoped that there has been a regional increase in awareness of the issues, and a better appreciation for and sensitivity to the issues for adults with developmental disabilities.
Literacy services for adults with developmental disabilities appear to have been enhanced by the project. It is anticipated that there will be more appropriate referrals and a better understanding of pre-literacy skills. As a result of some of the initiatives taken, new practitioners will shortly receive training regarding literacy issues for adults with developmental disabilities. Furthermore, it is now felt that service providers will be better informed about the realities and needs of providing accessible, inclusive literacy programming. Agency and program delivery staff and volunteers have indicated the need for continuing dialogue between the two service sectors.
