Connections in our Communities. What happens when consumers have non functional literacy?

I presented this paper during the week at the Speech Pathology Australia conference in Melbourne.
It was wonderful to see a greater interest from all sectors in this area.

I have tried to upload a pdf of the paper to my blog here, without success. Please email me if you would like to view it before it goes onto my website.

Below are some of the links to the resources I showed in my paper.
There are many more examples both nationally and internationally. Please contact me if there is a particular topic you need.

 I would be happy to talk with you, your organisations and the people you support about how to implement Easy English.
