Date posted: August 4, 2016
If you are interested in finding a wide variety of disability and mental health resources for practitioners working with adult literacy students, visit PANDA: Minnesota Adult Basic Education Disability Specialists. On the website, there are specific disability chapters, including ADHD, brain injury, hearing and vision loss, physical disabilities and mental health. The chapters are written by ABE professionals and disability specialists. Chapters for each disability include an overview of the disability, identification and diagnosis, classroom challenges, instructional strategies, English Language Learner (ELL) applications, assistive technology, resources and website links.
Because it was designed for ABE programs and teachers in Minnesota, the services it refers to are specific for that area. But, the general information will be useful in many other locations.
