Accessible written information resources for adults with intellectual disability: compiling the evidence to inform good practice

This Australian report discusses the need to make written information sources more acceptable for adults with intellectual disabilities. The report discusses research being conducted by three Australian universities to investigate what constitutes truly accessible written information, and how such resources might be produced.

The preliminary project report outlines: “1. The issues that need to be considered when preparing accessible written information, 2. Evidence to support the recommendations made by the various guidelines with respect to preparing accessible written information resources, 3. What else we need to consider when supporting people to use written information.”
