A Brief Guide to Easy Read: Not All Needs Can Be Met

Easy Read documents will not meet the needs of everyone who has difficulties in reading and understanding written information.

Easy Read documents will:

  • allow some people to access the information independently
  • provide a useful tool for support workers when working with individuals or groups
  • enable people to make their own choices.

Easy Read documents are just one way of helping people understand information.  Other ways include:

  • speaking to someone
  • film (DVD or internet sites like YouTube)
  • Audio recordings (CD, MP3).
