Welcome to the Clear Language Lab at Literacy Works!
The Clear Language Lab is a consulting group that works with organizations to deliver their message in a clear way. This makes sure that the people who need the information can actually understand it.
Clear Language Consultants provide two services to client organizations:
- Training for staff in clear and effective communication
- Materials Re-Development to create easy to read documents
Over 30 million people in the U.S. struggle with reading and writing. They are blocked from accessing critical information about health, employment, and community services when content is presented in a confusing and difficult way. The Clear Language Lab works to promote equity and transparency through effective communication.
