Abstract

This paper illustrates contents, methods, and results of the first Italian course on easy-to-read, a model of facilitated writing for readers with intellectual disabilities and other reading difficulties, specifically aimed at the staff of a university. The course was organized by the Department of Legal, Language, Interpreting and Translation Studies at the University of Trieste. After an introduction on easy-to-read, the paper focusses on the drafting guidelines provided to the participants, and on the availability of administrative documents in easy-to-read. The structure, purpose, and results of the course are then illustrated through the example of a text written by the participants showing how the principles of easy-to-read were put into practice. Finally, some of the objections and remarks most frequently raised in class are reported as F.A.Q.s (frequently asked questions), as reference for future courses and dissemination initiatives.
