However, there are three main groups of adult learners who are operating at entry-level. They are:

  • Adults who have good listening comprehension skills but poor decoding skills. They can understand texts they hear, but cannot read these texts efficiently by themselves. This group includes adults who may have dyslexia.
  • Adults with poor listening comprehension and good decoding skills. They can decode texts, but not understand them well. This group will include adults whose first language is not English.
  • Adults with poor listening comprehension and poor decoding skills. This group will have multiple instructional needs.
