The “Whole Life” project was a two-year professional development and training project to support adult literacy educators to address learning disabilities (LD) in their practice settings. The project took a holistic view of learning disabilities, and aimed to support adult literacy educators in five key areas:
- Learning about LD
- Screening learners who may have an LD (intake strategies)
- Creating LD-friendly settings
- Taking care of the spirit, or Supporting learners with the emotional issues that often “walk beside” LD.
