Equal Right to Decide

September 2023

‘Equal Right to Decide’ is about human rights and decision making in Australia. We wrote it with people with intellectual disability.

It is the first international peer-reviewed Easy Read research journal article.

People with intellectual disability are not always included in research or able to access academic research articles.

A team of authors wrote the article using easy words, short sentences and pictures to make the information easy to understand.

It is published in ‘Advances in Neuro-Developmental Disorders (Springer) Special Issue on Rights of Persons with Disabilities: Current Status and Future Directions’.
