A N I X T E R C E N T E R - LITERACY PROGRAM
The first and only program of its kind in Chicago,
serving learners of all abilities with disabilities, the
Jack Ehrlich Literacy Program has been a leader in
adult literacy for over 25 years. Funded by the
Secretary of State, the literacy program is designed to
strengthens the reading, writing, math, and computer
skills of adult learners with disabilities so that they
may live in the community more independently,
prepare for a competitive job, and experience
enhanced quality of life. Volunteer tutors provide
curriculum based virtual and in person instructional
sessions with the goal of supporting adult learners
with their individualized goals. We use the SORT-R at
intake to assess the literacy skills of each adult learner
at the time they enter the program.
