My Health Matters folder
We are working to make the My Health Matters folder even better.
We will be doing this work in April, May and June of 2021.
If you have ideas about how we can make it better, or what we should put in it, we would love to hear from you.
My Health Matters is an Easy Read folder created to improve communication between people with an intellectual disability and their healthcare providers.
The My Health Matters folder is made by people with an intellectual disability for people with disability.
- It lets people know if you use an app, a picture board, sign language or your voice to communicate.
- It will help you explain if you need someone to stick to one topic at a time.
- It has a place for you to write your questions for the doctor.
You can download and print your own copy (5.3MB).
If you have any questions, please call us on 1800 424 065.
