Easy Read is one form of accessible information.  Easy Read is about making written information easier to understand. Easy Read documents use short simple sentences with pictures.

Easy Read documents are one way to make information more accessible to people with learning disabilities.

Other Communication Techniques

Easy Read documents will not meet the communication needs of everyone with learning disabilities.  People with learning disabilities use a whole array of communication supports. Some examples of other ways people communicate include:

Equality Act 2010

Equality Act 2010 under reasonable adjustments, public bodies are obliged to make information accessible to disabled people. It is the organisation’s responsibility to act proactively to create accessible information. Failure to provide reasonable accommodation in the form of accessible information can be considered discrimination under equality legislation.
