Easy English is a writing style that is simple and easy to understand.

Writing in Easy English enables access to information for people who may find it difficult to understand English. This includes persons with intellectual disabilities or anyone whose first language is not English.

This supports persons with intellectual disabilities in participating meaningfully in schools, workplaces and beyond.
