This site contains hundreds of links to literacy and 
language resources starting at the earliest level of language 
acquisition to adult literacy. The resources suit a wide variety 
of needs including students who are 'at risk' for low levels of 
literacy and might have  learning difficulties  as well as those 
who are designated ESL/ELD and/or  ASD.  Whenever possible,
resources have been chosen that are both audio and visual.
