Illustration of front cover of Easy Read Self help for tinnitus leafletWith the aid of a grant from the Big Lottery Awards for All scheme, we have been able to publish four leaflets in Easy Read format.

This format of simple text and line drawings has been specially devised to help people with learning disabilities access the information they need to manage their tinnitus.

Nearly 1 million people in England alone have a learning disability. The prevalence of hearing loss in people with learning disabilities is up to 40% and this often goes un- or mis-diagnosed.

Tinnitus can be a difficult condition to deal with and if you have a learning disability, you might really struggle to articulate the problem. There has been a lack of information available for people with learning disabilities and we were keen to address this.

The titles available in Easy Read are:

  • All about tinnitus

  • Hearing aids and tinnitus

  • Self help for tinnitus

  • Tinnitus services
