What is Easy Read?

Individuals with disabilities have the right to self-determination.
A key part of self-determination is to control one’s life and to make good choices.

This includes having good information about their interests and concerns.

This means that some documents need to be more easily understood.
Changing documents so they can be more readable is called Easy Read.

The items below are new Easy Read documents by the Florida Developmental Disabilities Council.
