Easy Read Documents

Easy Read Documents logo

Description

‘Easy read’ refers to the presentation of text in an accessible, easy-to-understand format. It is often useful for people with learning disabilities, and may also be beneficial for people with other conditions affecting how they process information.

Easy read materials are becoming more commonplace, and their value in providing information to people with learning disabilities is widely accepted. However, some people may still need support in understanding easy read information. It should not be assumed that all easy read documents will be understood.
