ABSTRACT
The article focuses on research into the adult literacy in the United States. Poor literacy skills can effect social work clients, as nearly 16 percent of adults in the United States reads at levels below basic literacy. The ways in which illiterate people cope with their inability to read is discussed, as well as the difficulty of confronting them about their learning deficiencies. It is suggested that social workers receive training to identify and work to help illiterate people to achieve their goals.
