Giordano (special education and developmental disabilities, New Mexico State U.) provides a developmental basis for adult literacy education and criteria for diagnosing adult literacy. He then describes six popular programs for teaching developmentally disabled adults to read: computer-assisted, skills-based, whole language, psychoeducational, programs that employ children's materials, and programs for functional literacy.
