Did you know research has shown that 44% of Australians have low English literacy? If you have clients that have low literacy skils or an intellectual disability, this is a great opportunity for you and your team to ask questions to our guest speaker, Caroline Livanos, the Founder and Lead Writer at Easy Read Australia.
This is great opportunity for Support Coordinators and other professionals in the disability sector to learn about Easy Read strategies and how to make information and communication resources more accessible.
Easy Read is a writing style that includes:
- key information
- clear headings
- simple language
- large font
- lots of white space
- meaningful images
Easy Read documents do not replace the original. They are companion documents that can be offered to people who would prefer to read a simpler version.
Ideally, Easy Read documents should be read with a support person who can explain hard concepts or find more information if needed.
