“Teaching Literacy to Adults with a Mild Intellectual Disability” and more specifically, some useful activities, resources, teaching methods and strategies.
About Christina: I have been teaching adult students with mild intellectual disabilities since 2008. My first job was with La Trobe Lifeskills, teaching the Certificate I in Transition Education. After that, in 2009 I taught at the then Kangan Institute for three years, in their Foundation Studies, Work Education and VCAL Departments. All the while, I was teaching literacy to students with various disabilities. In 2013, I taught VCAL (Literacy focus) at what is now Melbourne Polytechnic’s Heidelberg campus, as well as at Olympic Adult Education in West Heidelberg, as an Adult Literacy teacher. My next move was to Box Hill Institute, in their Work Education Department and then finally, I landed a job (in 2015) at the now Melbourne Polytechnic Preston Campus, where I am currently teaching a variety of subjects, including Literacy, within their Work Education Programs.
