Easy News: a new magazine for people with learning disabilities

Easy News is the first news magazine designed to be accessible for people with learning disabilities.

Politics and the news are often inaccessible to people with learning disabilities because of the use of jargon and difficult language – that’s why we decided to create an easy read news magazine.

Easy News uses simplified text and useful pictures to provide people with learning disabilities with easy to understand, politically neutral summaries of key news stories and events.

The stories are selected and translated by UR Consultants, a group of people with learning disabilities and autism who are experts in easy read communication.
