Understanding information is vital for health, keeping your home and family and day to day living. Yet many people with learning disabilities are excluded because they find general information difficult to understand. Easyread is a way of presenting information that is easier for people with learning disabilities to understand.
During the day we will cover:
- what easy read is
- legal issues
- how to meet the new Accessible Information Standard
- using clear words and ways of writing
- using pictures and images to help make the text clear
- start writing easy read
Participants are asked to bring a leaflet or letter from their organisation to begin the easy read process.
