Meet Typical Adult Learners
Adults participate in PAR for many reasons. Meet Kristi, a typical adult learner who has participated in a library literacy program to enhance her language and literacy skills.
Adults who have problems reading and writing also have problems when they go to the doctor. Some try to hide their problem from their doctors. Watch these videos of Enrique and Kristi as they explain what it's like to have a health concern combined with a reading and writing problem. In addition to the human costs, in the U. S. the annual monetary cost is over $200 billion when adults go to emergency rooms more frequently, are sicker, and are hospitalized longer. Medication errors often happen when adults can't read the instructions on their medicines.
Join the program. Improve your reading and writing.
