Prospect’s foundational literacy program for learners who have a developmental disability.
Program participants will receive personalized 1-2 hour lessons, up to twice a week, to improve their literacy levels based on their needs and goals. Support may be provided in small groups and learners can also receive an additional 1 hour of one-to-one support.
Examples of foundational learning goals include reading a map, creating a to-do list, and other practical daily applications. The program timeline depends on individual learner goals, but will not exceed 10 months.

If you’re a results-oriented donor, Prospect is a great option. Last year we touched the lives of over 8,073 Albertans and helped 1,230 people hear the words, “You Got The Job!”
