ADULT BASIC EDUCATION (ABE) READING PROGRAM

Classes are designed for adults who want to improve their basic education skills (reading, language, and/or math), or prepare for beginning GED/HSED instruction. ABE is made up of a continuum of sub-programs, including Wilson Reading System©, Computer-Assisted Learning, Language Mechanics, and the Pre-Secondary Education program.

Meet Tiffany

2018 STUDENT OF INSPIRATION - ABE

Tiffany was motivated to improve herself because she believed her daughter deserved a mother with the best skills to nourish her growing mind. She enrolled at Literacy Services with one goal: to become a better reader. As she builds her skills, she frequently exclaims how valuable her learning experience is to both her and her daughter, Darii. Tiffany and Darii are a known pair at our downtown location, often working on homework as a team or chatting with staff and volunteers. Their daily schedule begins bright and early at 4:00 am each day to ensure Tiffany has time to participate in Darii’s classroom, manage her full-time job, and attend her own classes. Each week Tiffany faithfully sets the best example for Darii, to be sure she has the best opportunities ahead. Just after she completed the Wilson Reading System, Tiffany welcomed her second daughter, Tiana, into the world, with a future made brighter by her own perseverance and hard work.
