We are offering our toolkit to help anyone who would like to start adult beginning reading classes. We are available for questions, suggestions and advice for those using the toolkit. If there is interest, we can form an online support group.
Beginning Reading Classes
Our classes were being held at Kingsessing Library, at 1201 S. 51st Street in Philadelphia. Unfortunately we have been unable to meet since the pandemic began, but we hope we can eventually start classes again.
NOT CURRENTLY OFFERED BUT MUCH NEEDED
Driver’s Manual Preparation Class
Adults with reading difficulties can have a hard time getting a drivers’ license. They can be perfectly competent drivers, but not be able to study the manual in order to pass the test. The test is given by ear, so it does not require reading. Much needed are classes where the manual will be read to the students, as well as the practice questions, so they can learn the information and be able to get their licenses. Having a driver’s license increases independence, job opportunities and quality of life, as well as decreasing the likelihood of legal difficulties associated with driving without a license.
We need adult beginning reading classes all over the city. Please try out our toolkit and contact us with questions about starting a program at your location.
