COURSE DESCRIPTION - 

CHARACTERISTICS OF INDIVIDUALS WHO LEARN DIFFERENTLY:
This course introduces the concept of a continuum of learning differences, which places adults with learning differences, problems, and disabilities in the context of all adult learners and their varying strengths and weaknesses. It identifies factors other than learning differences or disabilities which may affect an individual's learning and behavior, and explains how these factors may interact with learning differences or disabilities.  It introduces a model of learning differences that explains how learning and processing differences ( for example, visual, auditory, right/left discrimination, or organization) affect perception, processing and communication. While strategies for working with adults with these differences may be touched upon, the course primarily provides a solid base of knowledge about how learning and perceptual differences affect adults' learning behavior.

This course is appropriate for all adult basic and literacy education practitioners, especially those working with  adults with learning differences, problems, or disabilities.
