Employability Skills for Adults with Learning Difficulties/Disabilities Curriculum (Sample Package)
The Adult Learning Resource Center (ALRC) has developed a unique curriculum and assessment model to help adults with special learning needs become more employable. The Employability Skills for Adults with Learning Difficulties/Learning Disabilities model provides an integrated system of intensive assessment, instruction, and work-based experiences. It was field tested and then adopted by adult education programs in Illinois with spectacular results:
Chronically unemployed adult learners trained through this model found jobs suited to their strengths and retained those jobs for more than 12 months.
