Adult Reading and Writing classes are one-on-one, private sessions for English-speaking adults who never learned to read or write.  Adults who do not read are typically highly intelligent and have developed impressive skills that allow them to navigate the world without reading.  It is never too late to learn to read!  If you know someone who would like more information or wish to set up a session, please call 770.834.4007.
