Guidelines for Developing Resources for Low-Reading-Level Consumers.
Oldham, Mary Jo
This study presents guidelines that were designed as references to help professionals and paraprofessionals create new resources or modify existing materials to meet the changing needs, interests, and abilities of persons with reading problems. Four procedures were used to develop the guidelines and to test their validity: materials that were used to develop 12 low-reading-level pamphlets and to prepare resource materials for the special-needs learner were examined; the home economists that designed the pamphlets were interviewed; 30 people that used the pamphlets were interviewed; and a 12-member professional jury evaluated data generated by the first three procedures. Results of the study indicate that the guidelines are useful and much needed by those people engaged in helping"low-literate" individuals improve the quality of their lives. (Author/RL)
