Adult Basic Literacy Education (ABLE) Classes

Our small group classes, which began in 2003, continue to grow. We now offer 15 classes a week. For adults who want to learn in a small group, ABLE classes help with: 

  • Sounding out words--phonics
 and vocabulary building

  • Reading with understanding

  • Spelling and writing

  • Life skills reading--bus maps, 
 pill bottles, bills, etc.

  • Consumer math

  • Basic computer skills

Most learners take small-group classes in conjunction with one-to-one tutoring. After learners have demonstrated commitment to the program by attending classes for a month, they are eligible for tutoring. 

Classes take place throughout the week at the following locations:

      Edgewood Terrace at 635 Edgewood Street NE, Washington, DC 20017      
      Wardman Court at 1350 Clifton Street NW, Washington, DC 20009
